- Good Evening!
Remember in January when Solia participated in Blackout Day? We had a thread to get your opinion on the issue and allow everyone to discuss how they felt about the SOPA and PIPA bills. The internet as a whole was enraged with these bills postponed until "issues raised about the bill were resolved".
Well the issues have now been "resolved". The resolution to the issues where for the most part abandon it and push PCIPA instead. Started in 2011 PCIPA stands for "Protecting Children from Internet Pornographers Act" it was for the most part ignored until recently due to many questioning how much it actually has to do with Child Pornography. However to lobbyists of SOPA and PIPA it's a great alternative because in the end who in their right mind would vote against protecting children?

Against ACTA and PCIPA.
So what do you think? Sneaky trick or something we actually need? What's your reasoning either way?
