BitShare is back up, after our 24hr #SOPAstrike

When I first went on SOPA Strike it was just after midnight on Wednesday, with the intention on striking with my custom message up to stop SOPA for 24 hours. I ended up keeping the message up all last night as well, so all in all, it was well over 24 hours of striking the horrible SOPA and PIPA bills. I am happy I did too.

The MPAA is crying like a little kid who isn’t getting their way

Now this is funny! Look who is acting like a little kid who didn’t get their way and is now throwing a hissy fit. It’s the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA).

The White House finally chimes in on SOPA

Well, it only took over a 100K signatures on two petitions using the official White House petition tool to get a response from the White House on the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). I’m sure along with all the other news and fury recently including the petitions, the Obama Administration must have felt the need to finally speak up and make a statement. Thankfully their response is in favor of those that oppose SOPA.

Hackers are creating workarounds just in case SOPA is passed

Internet censorship in the U.S. is still a real fear and possibility as the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) is still under consideration.
