Hello dear pilots, tankers, visitors, moderators, administrators, developers and everyone else .

I am here with you today to tell you abit on SOPA and PIPA bills & what they will do.

Those bills are going to put censorship on the  internet. Even if you are not from the US this will affect all based  websites that's connected to the US, and thus you using them.

What can you do? Do not support those bills/laws. I will not talk more about  this because people who know more have talked about it extensively that you can search, but I'm going to give you a taste.


The US goverment thinks that it has the support of the gaming industry because the company that's hosting E3 is supporting the bill. A lot of the game developers have said that they will NOT attend E3 this year unless ESA remove their support for SOPA/PIPA. You can sign the petition for them to remove their support here. http://www.change.or...-and-boycott-e3




I am asking Wargaming to openly say that they will NOT attend E3 this year ,unless ESA withdraw their support from SOPA/PIPA.

If you want a free internet you can comment below and ask Wargaming  to remove their support from the ESA and do not attend E3 this year unless the ESA removes their support for SOPA/PIPA.
Attending the 2012 E3 basically means that SOPA thinks that everyone that's comming to E3 is supporting them & what they do. This is not right.

"According to Game Informer, video game companies Activision and Vivendi Games have broken away from ESA. In an interview with Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick,  when asked why the company left the ESA, he stated that they "have  [their] own issues that are not the industry's issues" and that they  need their own executive to deal with the government instead of the ESA.[5] However Activision continues to attend and showcase its games at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2009, Electronic Entertainment Expo 2010 and Electronic Entertainment Expo 2011 while the other half of the company, Blizzard Entertainment, no longer attends the show and hosts its own event called BlizzCon."

I will not let what we have here be destroyed. Please someone copy this & pass it on to other forums. You can tailor the message so it fits in the respective forum as you like, the meaning will always be the same.

I believe in a free and open internet.

US intellectual rights laws are considered to be predecessors by many prominent influencers outside USA.

If this kind of silly thing actually gets implemented in USA it might not be long until it will be monkeyed into EU legislation.

The next attempt will be November this year but the bill has lost most of its support so chances are it will meet with failure.

Don't forget about PIPA.

SOPA is an extreme one, but they are also pushing in PIPA.
Some people think SOPA is this extreme on purpose, so that it fails, and then they go around the back and push PIPA, which seems less extreme, but it's about the same thing.

THIS bill will meet failure.
DMCA passed, PRO-IP passed, ACTA is currently active. Sooner or later, the next one will come up, unless old media companies wrap their heads around the web service model (don't hold your breath), or they finally collapse.

I was referring to the failure of the November bill. Many that backed the current bill have abandoned it, mostly due to the Black-out of many high-profile sites as well as Anonymous attacks on official US Govt. sites.

No internet?

That would mean returning to the days when we actually looked at each other in the evenings...
