SOPA on the ropes? Bipartisan alternative to 'Net censorship emerges

SOPA on the ropes? Bipartisan alternative to 'Net censorship emerges | Social Media Marketing Strategies | Scoop.it
Turns out both liberals and conservatives have issues with Internet censorship, and 10 members of Congress have now proposed a new approach to online piracy. Oh, and they want feedback before they write the bill.

 

The two-page draft of the plan is being issued so that "the public can provide us with feedback and counsel before the proposal is formally introduced in the House and the Senate." And clearly, feedback would be useful. Can such a "follow the money" plan do anything about noncommercial piracy, for instance? Should it try to do so? But the whole shift in tone marked by the new approach looks far more promising than anything likely to come out of the mess that is SOPA.

 

Who's behind all of this sweet sanity? Senators Wyden (D-OR), Cantwell (D-WA), Moran (R-KS), and Warner (D-VA); Reps. Chaffetz (R-UT), Campbell (R-CA), Doggett (D-TX), Eshoo (D-CA), Issa (R-CA), and Lofgren (D-CA).

Comparing social media in the U.S. to that in China brings to mind the fact the American government has yet to chime in on social media. Soon, it will.

 

With #SOPA #PIRACY concerns this topic should be taken very seriously. 

 

What this means for those of us in America, and other Western countries for that matter, is that only now are the lawsuits beginning. Our governments have not reacted to how we use the social web because, for the most part, to date no one has been hurt. But as more businesses and individuals become more knowledgeable and savvy with how social media works, who uses it and for what reason, more will find legal reasons to legislate how we use it.


Expect court cases to be in the news in the coming months and years that not only tell us how we can use social media, but how we can’t.
