Hello Team Gold. As some of you know, some big sites like Wikipedia have blacked out recently. This is because of piracy copyright acts. They want to take all copyright material from websites which could mean closing the site down. I don’t really know about it as it is American and i’m British but here is a post that CPAC made:
NOTE: THIS POST CONTAINS IMPORTANT LINKS. PLEASE READ THIS POST. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO CLUB PENGUIN WARFARE’S FUTURE!
PLEASE REBLOG THIS ON YOUR ARMY SITE IF YOU ARE AGAINST SOPA! EVERYONE’S VOICE COUNTS!
Hello CP Armies,
Today, I wanted to veer off a little bit from Club Penguin Armies to talk to you about SOPA and PIPA. These are two new bills that were presented by Lamar Smith of Texas (Republican) and Patrick Leahy of Virginia (Democrat) in the United States, and have been given quite the opposition by Internet users worldwide. With you guys, I would like to go over what wikipedia.org has on their articles on SOPA and PIPA.
SOPA is the Stop Online Piracy Act. The act states that whomever has copyrighted material on their site without permission from the copyright owner can have their sight shut down and can sue for any damages caused by loss of copyright. This means if you have a song that you do not own and you use it on social media sites or anywhere and the government/copyright owner finds you, you can get sued and possibly go to jail. You know playlist.com and it’s songs? Yeah, make a user account and have some of those songs, and you’re now a felon according to the U.S. government. In fact, it is going to be international Yes! You could LINK it and get in trouble!
For more on SOPA, please look at a very informational video and click HERE
PIPA is the “Protect IP Act” This protects people from distribution of illegal copies of material. Then it would block the site it was going against.
Now although reporters should not show bias in reports, this is a matter that requires bias. I personally will not like it if this bill is passed by the American government. It means that anyone hosting American content is subject to lawsuit. That’s right, even CPAC. CPAC can get in a lawsuit if Disney Studios Canada gets their way, because Disney is a full supporter of SOPA and PIPA
If you would like to participate in the blackout tomorrow on January 18, 2012; please go toamericancensorship.org & Anon News and petition. Also, put all anti-sopa stuff in your name as you can. I will talk to a CPAC admin, and if possible, I will get them to block the CPAC site for 12 hours in conjuction with SOPA protests. I also urge all CP Armies to block off their websites and chats for 12-24 hours, but it is not required.
Pretty much a basic post today. I’ve kept stuff on the calm because of other stuff that I will be working on for CPAC in the next few days, including a huge post.
Until next time,
[SORRY THIS NAME IS CENSORED. DISNEY OWNS IT. GUESS I DON’T HAVE A NAME ANYMORE]
As you can see they are against it and so should. I don’t know if we can black out for 12hrs. As stated in CPAC post it is VERY IMPORTANT TO CP WARFARE,
Stay tuned for more events soon!
