If you could write a sensible version of SOPA what would it be?

    I laughed at this article: [link=http://rt.com/usa/news/hollywood-obama-sopa-support-229/]Hollywood threatens Obama over SOPA[/link]

    ?God knows how much money we?ve given to Obama and the Democrats and yet they?re not supporting our interests,?

    I realize this is a novel concept for some people, but while money helps, you actually need people to vote for you and continue doing so if you wish to remain a politician. And when the interests of the voters outweigh the interests of the poor, neglected MPAA, politicians tend to go with the group that might re-elect them.

    And as yesterday showed, the internet is a very powerful tool in being able to take on lobbyists without spending pretty much anything for many sites. And being the current president, perhaps the president is in a decent position to get re-elected. But sure, I'm sure hollywood would rather President Romney anyway.

    And Chris Dodd is apparently the one who needs a time out. I've been seen more mature responses from a toddler. [face_plain]

    Well, Gingrich and Romney have come out against SOPA. But both of them will probably flip-flop on it numerous times before Election Day. :p

    Saying it tonight, though, may give cover for more Republicans to come out against it in the near-term.

    I haven't played a pirated game in eight years.

    I have bought games, been disgusted by the security software on them, and then downloaded and played cracked versions.
