Hari Blackout - SOPA/PIPA

Baru-baru ini kita dikejutkan dengan isu SOPA/ PIPA di dunia internet tanpa batasan ini. Apa tu SOPA? Apa tu? Nama panjang dia Stop Online Piracy Act. Try check website ni : Dah tak lama dah. Dari hal-hal itu, banyak gak website yang merajuk. Dah tu, Megaupload pun dah RIP (2005 - 2012) dah. Camna nak download? Dan aku rasa ada lagi website yang bakal mengekori jejak langkah dia.

Antara website yang merajuk. Hehe


"For over a decade, we have spent millions of hours building the largest encyclopedia in human history," Wikipedia says on its Web site. "Right now, the U.S. Congress is considering legislation that could fatally damage the free and open Internet. For 24 hours, to raise awareness, we are blacking out Wikipedia."


"Today, for 12 hours, goes dark to raise awareness of two bills in congress: H.R.3261 'Stop Online Piracy Act' and S.968 'PROTECT IP', which could radically change the landscape of the Internet," Reddit said on its site. "These bills provide overly broad mechanisms for enforcement of copyright which would restrict innovation and threaten the existence of websites with user-submitted content, such as reddit."


"Many websites are blacked out today to protest proposed U.S. legislation that threatens internet freedom: the Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA)," WordPress said. "From personal blogs to Wikipedia, sites all over the web — including this one — are asking you to help stop this dangerous legislation from being passed. Please watch the video below to learn how this legislation will affect internet freedom, then scroll down to take action."


Wired's Web site has placed black "censored" bars over its stories, though hovering over these boxes will reveal the stories. The site is also calling on readers to sign Google's "Don't censor the Web"

Boing Boing

"Boing Boing is offline today, because the US Senate is considering legislation that would certainly kill us forever," the site said. "The legislation is called the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA), and would put us in legal jeopardy if we linked to a site anywhere online that had any links to copyright infringement."

Electronic Frontier Foundation

The EFF placed a "stop censorship" banner atop its logo and launched a Web site calling on people to take action against SOPA and PIPA.


Mozilla is redirecting traffic from the main and English Web sites to an action page for 12 hours on Wednesday, Jan. 18 from 8am to 8pm U.S. Eastern Time.


"Because we think there’s a good way forward that doesn’t cause collateral damage to the web, we’re joining Wikipedia, Twitter, Tumblr, Reddit, Mozilla and other Internet companies in speaking out against SOPA and PIPA," Google said in a blog post. It added a black "censored" bar atop its logo, as well as a link with more information about the bills to its homepage.

Cheezburger Network

"A bill called PIPA proposed in the US Senate will cripple the Web—one of the biggest job-creating engines in America—and censor our online freedoms," the company said. "It could mean the censoring of Cheezburger, Facebook, Wikipedia, and millions of others. It will mean censoring you."


Twitpic also placed a "stop censorship" banner atop its logo. Clicking on it also provides more information about the bills, as well as a way to contact your representatives in Congress.


"Flickr is letting members darken their photos — or the photos of others — for a 24-hour period to deprive the web of the rich content that makes it thrive," Flickr said on its blog. " Your symbolic act will help draw attention to this issue and let others know about the potential harmful impacts of these bills."

Twitter's U.S. Trending Topics

Twitter's trending topics in the U.S. this morning were SOPA/PIPA-centric, with #FactsWithoutWikipedia, End Piracy, Stop SOPA and PIPA, Not Liberty, and Tell Congress all making the list.

Pertanyaan untuk anda. Internet patut ada sekatan atau tidak? Kenapa?
