Jackson-Online respects legitimate Intellectual Property rights of others, but we are concerned about the consequences of SOPA/PIPA far reaching laws, both for citizens of the US, and the global community.
An example of what can happen: If a visitor to anyone's website offering the ability to post to a guestbook, a forum, an online classified or even comment on articles decides to be malicious could post a link to a piracy website and the website that has that post would be shut down. Also another scenario, COMPETITION, one business competing for the same business that another website has - visitor post illegal information to the competition's website, the competition gets shut down.
There is a better way to stop piracy, but these Acts are not the solution!
We are expressing our concern with these US Congress and Senate bills:
A US Congressional vote is slated on these bills for this month [now delayed until February], and many feel that it will inevitably become a mandate for formalized Internet censorship, with an impact that goes far beyond the borders of any single country.
