SOPA Blackout
« on: January 18, 2012, 12:16:11 am »
PROTECT IP / SOPA Breaks The Internet

In observance of the SOPA blackout, the following BVEStation Services run by BVEStation will be offline:

BVEStation Teamspeak

All other BVEStation Services will run normally, with the occasional advisory on SOPA.

The SOPA blackout is not supported by the members of the website, rather the highest level admins as a whole.

The senior admins support a more open community as opposed to a closed one, and therefore does not reflect the community as a whole.

However, I haven't seen any of these incidents where people "complain about people using other peoples work without their permission" lately.

Well for one I DO NOT IN ANYWAY support SOPA or PIPA .
We live in america , not North Korea or China . We have free speech and the United States Government , let alone Greedy corporations,  should not Censor the Internet just so consumers can buy their stupid products.

(Example) They pass this bill, I'll will make my own shit. Trust me on that. Come on really, so just because 67% of the nation wont by your burger you gonna censor coupons and free burgers just to get your product sold.

Just saying the gorvernment has issues but this definitely not one way to deal with it. They are just sinking themselves deeper into an economical downfall.

well it's not illegal, just plain disrespectful. Nice try though

And SOPA will be back, it's been thrown out twice already.
