This is info you probably DON'T know about already: The companies that created pirating software (Kazaa, BitTorrent, etc.) DELIBERATELY created it to fabricate a false "piracy epidemic"...with the ultimate goal of censoring the internet.

Please post this to every forum you frequent, to your elected officials, and to your own YouTube account, if you have one. This video must go viral, so that we can show our computer-challenged members of Congress how they are being duped.

1. Kicked and recommended.
Where are the recommendations, people?

We must have widespread awareness of this issue.

4. It amazes me how people are ignoring SOPA
They'll regret it when SOPA kicks into effect, but by then it will be too late.

3. You're so right
But some of the companies have backed away from supporting SOPA already. If we keep the pressure on them, we stand a chance of winning.

6. The companies backing off are small potatoes...
The companies supporting it are the massive old media conglomerates. And they have deeper pockets, and older connections and are more able to directly influence and speak to our stodgy, out of touch, and obsolete politicians.

5. Are you questioning my President?
Don't tell me you are questioning my President. I'll hunt you down to the corners of the earth!
