Internet & Networking Yesterday, it was revealed GoDaddy actively supported SOPA - to the point of arrogance and dedain towards those opposing the US censorship law. As a result, a boycott was instated on reddit, which was picked up all over the web. Today, the company rescinded its support for SOPA - but for some high-profile clients, it's too late. Behold, the power of the internet.

Copyright is a protection any citizen expects from any modern country.

Copyright's are held by both companies and private citizens and they make money from them. Of course some people think that stealing form companies is OK. It is not no matter how you post it.

My family has earned money from patents and they too should be protected just as any work of art, music, film or thought should be for some time protected by law. Stealing from Disney is just as immoral as stealing from Black Sabbath.

Only a crook would believe that child porn and stolen works need to be on the internet.

Your family should not be protected at a cost of destroying a resource that the rest of the world uses.

You are using child porn as a way to re-enforce your flawed point. Instead of blocking child porn, the people who upload such shit need to go to prison and or mental rehabilitation. ISPs will take down such material with or without SOPA as it is illegal and immoral.

Lastly, copyrights and patents are not the same, your post seems to use them interchangeably.
