    TB tells it like it is.

    Oh and before you ask about who is TB to talk about law. He is a Trained UK law graduate.

    How I feel about TB.

    Honestly though he's right. I am hoping it's just some kind of bad joke.

    I can't believe they'd even think about it, but alas the american government loves to do stupid things all the time.
    Also read on reddit that they've tried to say it has been postponed the hearing date to 2012 but are actually revisiting it next week on the 21st.

    It's a joke they can even try and get away with passing SOPA.

    If this passes, new ways to pirate might be invented making it all so easier to do. By fighting something you are forcing it to evolve. Internet 2.0.

    I find it amusing that one company can wipe out megaupload in America and then when 3 well known artists make a song to complain. They are also able to wipe that song of youtube. This company has no links to these 3 artists so it bypasses all laws of freedom of speech. I hear thats big in America.

    problem is its need one of the big youtubers from America to do what TB did. If a Day9 or Captain Sparkles or ilk took on the role it would launch the issue hugely in America. Would one of them though want to upset the applecart though?

    and look where that got us :p

    TB is right though. That video is not exactly useful in the fight against SOPA.
    Whether or not you like TB, you must know he's a very intelligent bloke and knows his law and how to present arguments.

    It is certainly not an introductory video for people who know nothing about SOPA and what it can lead to. No one is going to sit through 15 min for him to get to the freaking point. He is also very annoying. But it has its value and, as TB said, the evidence is solid. Won't harm to watch when you are already into the whole deal with SOPA just to see that once again corporations are assholes.
