It is not terrorism to shut your own site down. Don't be retarded.
Do you have any proof? AFAIK google complies with all US court orders. And they also comply with DMCA takedowns. As a copyright holder I have issued a few DMCA takedown notices because my videos were being used on youtube without my permission. Youtube (aka Google) took down the videos within a few hours.
Because child pornography sites are illegal. And they are easily identifiable. On the other hand sites like thepiratebay are not illegal in many countries (including the US). Nor is determining copyright ownership as easy as identifying child pornography.
If a US court told Google to remove search results pointing to thepiratebay then Google would. But linking to thepiratebay.org is not illegal. Copyright infringment is a civil matter.
No. Everything you have posted has been nonsense. Do you know why wikipedia is protesting? No...? Then shut the fuck up.
Wikipedia allows internet users to edit pages. Now what happens if someone edits an obscure page on wikipedia and puts up a copyrighted image that he didn't have permission to use? SOPA says that the person who owns the copyrighted image can shut down all of wikipedia.
I'll put it into a T-Nation context: If you, SexMachine, post a picture in this thread that you don't own the copyrights to, and I, the creator of the picture find out about it I CAN SHUT DOWN ALL OF T-Nation. Bam. No more T-Nation.
For example your display picture. Did you ask the creator (RaggedShirts) of the image if you could make a copy or link to it? Did they put on their website that you were allowed to use it (e.g. creative commons licenced it)? If not then you are violating their copyright.
When someone copy-pastes a news article (and I can see it in quite a few T-Nation pwi threads) they are violating copyright unless the newspaper/writer gave them permission to copy the text. So based on these existing threads if SOPA passes then T-Nation could be shut down without any sort of due process. Because some idiots copied and pasted more than they are allowed to.
