[I]The video title is "Anonymous: SOPA passed. We are displeased[/I]"[B] But the bill is NOT passed yet!![/B]

There is a new bill that the United States government has successfully passed. It is called the Stop Online Piracy Act, or (SOPA) for short. Also known as The Protect IP Act of 2011. The US Congressional Budget Office estimates that implementation of the bill would cost the federal government 47 million dollars through 2016.

Translated into plain english, It will cost tax payers 47 million dollars over the next 4 years.
The SOPA act will censor you from accessing certain websites and block all access to other areas of the internet that the United States government does not want you to access.

The SOPA act essentually means, that even if you make a video of your child playing or singing and you have music playing in the background, or video on TV, you are breaking the law, and the government will order the websites that host your content to censor your content because of their new bill.

[B] Or if you visit websites that are on servers not in the United States you will be blocked so that you cannot access them.[/B] ^^^ [I][U][B]This affects all users of funkypool that are in UNITED STATES im assum[/I]ing[/U]...[/B]

All seems very weird. I can understand the need to block illegal torrent and peer2peer sites, but to potentially block a youtube video of someone's child singing along to Beyonce or Bieber is just way over the top.
