Bill that could kill some internet sites?EDIT: Let me clarify a little here. This is -only- a bill. Please sign the petition if you support the petition, but there is no need to be overly concerned about this. As long as we continue to inform and make our voices heard, there's probably nothing to worry about.Bill that could kill some internet sites? by akeli
Deviantart is not shutting down!
If you hadn't already heard the news from tumblr:
There's a bill in congress (this one: http://judiciary.house.gov/hearings/pdf/112%20HR%203261.pdf - that was transparent, right?), that claims to fight internet piracy. What it really does is give a copyright owner the right to shut down any site that has even a single page of infringing material with only 5 days notice to the owner. You don't have to even prove in court that you're guilty first! This means Deviantart, Youtube, or any startup that is having trouble managing the infringing material could be at risk.

Well, you ought to know that I'm...a bit...erm, how should I put this...|
Different. Special. Insane. Crazy. All understatements. There's nothing wrong with my brain (hopefully) it's just my...interesting...ahem, cough, personality ^^
1) I like to draw wolves and dragons, and am hopelessly addicted to ChickenSmoothie and Editable Oekaki.
2) People die when they are killed.
3) Filmcow Fan! (points at self)
4) My friends in real life are xHobocakes, Kuropuu, and Fay-Farts. I mean, Leo.
5) xHobocakes is scary. You don't want to meet her in a dark alley or she'll kill you.
6) Kuropuu is a stalker. An otaku-stalker, which makes my friends all much more dangerous.
7) Fay-Farts is ...well, we're all special, aren't we?
8) How much of this is lies and how much of this is truth?
