SOPA – PIPA Review
I came across this video from Khan Academy in the comments of the issue on Matt Carter’s blog and am embedding it so you can get informed about this very important issue.
It has serious implications for how information is shared on the web.
Now I understand the concern Hollywood and the big media companies have. They don’t want folks stealing their content.
I produced content for television for over 25 years so I get their point.
I just think this approach is not the right way to go about it.
While the intent of these laws is benign and understandable, the devil is in the details and this video illustrates the dangers by citing some of the language of the proposed law.
Now, for the moment, the law has been shelved. But rest assured, this issue will come up again. So you should be aware of what is going on and contact your Congressional reps if you are a US citizen and stay informed.
Stay with it stay well and talk soon.
