SOPA is back... Artists and writers take heed and sign the petition!

Copied from an email I got today:

***

PLEASE SIGN!  They are trying to make it a felony charge to:

stream media, do a cover of a song, write fan fiction, produce fan art!

as those in government and business think that this is misuse of copy-righted material.

PLEASE SIGN!

***

As a personal observation, if SOPA goes through a lot of artists and writers here and on other sites would be eligible for prosecution for doing nothing more than expressing their love of a franchise.  DON'T LET IT HAPPEN TO YOU!

I don't see them actually putting it into play. By the time they did, the whole nation would be put behind bars, if I'm reading it right.

I understand they're trying to stealth it in this time by attaching the bill to something else and not talking about it.  the problem last time for SOPA supporters was that it got into the public domain and the public kicked up a storm so opposition have a firm foot against it.  this time they've been very quiet and apparently it's worked for them so far as this only came to light a few days ago.

Either way it goes, I'm still signing. The way I see it, if I buy a copy of a CD/DVD/game disc/book, then I've bought my right to do with it what I will as long as I don't try making a business by renting it to others.

on another note, some people on other sites I've reposted this to think it is spam.  It's not  I got this email from my wife after she had done some research on streaming and downloading as the government is trying to catch people out.
