SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) has been introduced in late 2011. Mid January, the FBI decided to shut down MegaUpload. You can read it on megaupload.com. They also arrested all founders. It's sad, because MegaUpload was widely used on the whole planet.
But it isn't over. Now Mega Upload is down, all websites know that the governments are a real threat. And there are some changes that occur:
- French authorities made irc.lc shut down its iframe pointing to the Anonymous webchat.
- Twitter recently announced that will censor tweets.
It's as if the government have now full power on publishers. Although I understand that content has to be controlled, I'm worried. I doubt that the methods used are fair. This censorship is definitely not the solution... I wonder how will thing evolve...
