...I think Smack Jeeves is hosted in the U.S. Correct me if I'm wrong.


For those of you expecting an actual page, I deeply apologize and I promise I'll try to get one up some time this weekend.

This is the first time I've felt legitimately threatened by one of these "online censorship" bills. Please, educate yourselves on this law. Fight it if you can. If you're a U.S. citizen, write your congressman. Phone in. Do whatever you can to make your voice heard (while keeping it legal of course. >.>)

Also, remember that just because you're not an American citizen doesn't mean you won't be effected. A large chunk of the most popular websites on the internet are grounded on U.S. soil, and could very well be shut down if this bill takes into effect. Don't think that because you don't live here, you can't do anything, though. Spread the word to everyone you know.

This law needs to be stopped before it can be implemented. Even if it won't immediately cause mass censorship (which is still a major possibility,) it will open the door for future, more oppressive laws to slide through.


I know November 16th (the date of a large online protest) has passed, but don't let that stop you from using this site for both action and information.

I signed this petition days ago, so you can count on me.

OnceTMaster , November 18th, 2011, 8:20 pm

Hm, it's got everyone on edge Zman d: Though, I myself don't even entertain the thought of this super censor happening. It's too broad and means less money for money hungry corporates (looking at chu google). So I hope everyone's not too high strung on this.

Zmanwarrior , November 18th, 2011, 8:29 pm

Google is pushing against it. It's corporations like the Motion Picture Association of America, the Chamber of Commerce, and Recording Industry Association of America that support the Bill.

Ultimate the Hedgehog , November 18th, 2011, 8:29 pm

@OnceTMaster: dude, i know it sounds unbeleivable but this bill has been a process in the making for years. it just got a big deal recently. this bill is still possible, we need to keep fighting if we want to keep our precious internet as we love it.

OnceTMaster , November 18th, 2011, 8:35 pm

I understand all the commotion, I do. But it's just too unrealistic in it's approach. It underestimates what the internet is actually capable of and how much funding it gives to all the corporates the Supreme Court itself supports.

Worse case? I theorize a lot of bribing from said corporates would make said money off said internets.

I'd say it's literally impossible. I'll support the movement against it but I'm not sure the worry level is as high as it should be. It won't be the last time they try something like this.

virtualboy2558 , November 18th, 2011, 8:40 pm

First digital TV signals replacing analog signals, and now this? There's no end to this injustice!

(I'm kidding... I never owned a TV that only broadcasted analog)

kevansevans , November 18th, 2011, 8:45 pm

doing this violates freedom of speech.

Floydyboy , November 18th, 2011, 8:59 pm

Wait. Didn't this happen before?

SteamingBullet , November 18th, 2011, 9:36 pm

This topic has come up a lot lately. And I dont blame it! This goes against the first amendment and Is unconstitutional! The president said he'd veto it if it passes congress. But it's Obama so anything could happen.

Rage , November 18th, 2011, 9:48 pm

What... the flying fuck?
NOW if you sing a song from somebody else, you're NOT sharing their work, but you're going to jail because you can't sing?
Woah woah. This is new times and we want fucking freedom. Not only that, but the more people know about the artist, the more money he/she will get from buying their CDs and whatever else they have to sell.

This is blasphemy.

nyancat6650 , November 18th, 2011, 10:03 pm

Looks like fat guy singing "MIAHEE MIAHA"
is going to jail if you let this pass

WhiteBladeZero , November 18th, 2011, 10:41 pm

For some reason, I feel as though this bill won't pass anyway. Although I'm against it, I don't feel worried for some reason...

Draven22 , November 18th, 2011, 11:55 pm

theres to much stuff on the internet, noway are they gonna be able to censor it all

Nocturnal-biatch , November 19th, 2011, 1:41 am

>implying this is a huge deal but it hasn't made tv news

Something is really fishy...

Lady Darkrina , November 19th, 2011, 5:32 am

I hope this bill doesn't succeed on passing. Count me in because I am against it too.

blitz5000 , November 19th, 2011, 5:38 am

Wasn't this already brought up months ago? Jesus Christ, you'd think they'd have either given up or passed the bill by now.

Hero of Comedy , November 19th, 2011, 7:21 am

This is the first I've heard of it.
AHH! No one tells me anything!
All I need is a suit and I can be a manager!

Kirbysmith [DJ] , November 19th, 2011, 8:27 am

...I really need to take action more often.
Thank you for doing this, Zman.

Arc Impulse , November 19th, 2011, 8:29 am

I believe there is a good chance nothing will come of it.

But still it's a scary thought. If ever there were a thing to actually make a vast majority of people stop using the internet all together, this would be it. Many people's email providers certainly will be affected since such sites usually also act as search engines, one of the leading targets of said act.

It could be a good plan, it really could, don't go lying. The problem is how specific it goes, or the lack thereof that results in it generalizing and covering even the amatuer scene as well as piracy. Sure this'll help small time film developers, musicians, comic writers, artists of sorts in making money. For those of us who just like to make fan works and havea little fun on the side such as this comic, that's who it will drastically impact.

Kirbysmith [DJ] , November 19th, 2011, 8:52 am

Why does the government want to do this anyway? The internet has gone along fine without it's help. It's been regulated by the people, the free-market.
But our now-corrupted government can't leave it's filthy, fat hands out of where the U.S. Constitution forbids them.
Hey, you like freedom of speech? That's in the Constitution. But does our Congress care, or even know what's in the Constitution that they so swore to protect? No. Not based on the bills they passed.
Nobody cared when they violated anti-gay propaganda, or put a lid on our pulpits. But that was just the beginning, the "camel getting it's nose under the tent," so to speak.
And violating our free speech is only the tip of the Unconstitutional iceberg.

Umbra the Bioweapon , November 19th, 2011, 9:48 am

The reason is simply becuase the MPAA and the RIAA have been trying to do away with anything and everything that is movie related, or music related that doesn't give them monetary gain. Greedy corporate asslickers have been trying to find ways to do away with the use of copyrighted material for free without monetary gain for years now. You have to remember, these are the companies that sue 13-year olds for downloading songs off of online file sharing programs(like how the napster case ended up). So ultimately, the companies are not trying to restrict freedom of speech, they're simply trying to get rid of anything and everything that doesn't involve money going in their pockets. I agree that it violates the constitution, believe me. My ultimate hope is that if the bill makes it to Obama's desk, that he vetos it, or if he passes it, it gets deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. Two-thirds majority overrule falls in the Supreme Court's ballpark as well. I would be very surprised if this bill were to actually be passed though.

TeamSonicPrez , November 19th, 2011, 10:08 am


SteamingBullet , November 19th, 2011, 11:05 am

@TeamSonicPrez he told the public he was going to veto it. I guess he realizes if this passes 75% of the Internet is gone.

sonicstar4453 , November 19th, 2011, 11:05 am

ill have no use for my laptop if this happens );
the government is doing this why? its like seriously, people know the word credit, the only people who dont use it are trolls, and i forget sometimes (i bet we all do). but if this was a problem for Sega and Nintendo, they would have stopped it long before now. and people know not to put too personal things online, cuz its just stupid if they do. i dont want this bill to be passed!!!!!!! D:<

_Accel_the_hedgehog_ , November 19th, 2011, 11:14 am

:/ Well That guy with the glasses got blocked for one day,i raged

Felix Wind , November 19th, 2011, 11:53 am


They may as well be saying "Fuck the internet. We're taking it from you."
Because that's a big part / the point of the internet. Explore the world from a computer.


Kuragari , November 19th, 2011, 12:47 pm

Firstly, I believe they tried and failed recently to get this past. Even if their still talking about it, you can almost be completely certain that Obama at least will block anything like this (especially if its being supported primarily by republicans) He'd also trump up the "Republicans defenders of free speech? HAH!" card.

And if the GOP managed to somehow, by some miracle of fate, win the white house, you can be damned sure the Dems wouldn't let it happen, and the GOP would be hard pressed to get it thru again anyways, as they'd be forced to try and rebrand themselves as "The ones who protect freedoms" again.

PLus, there's the simple fact of the likely retaliation that simple unsuspecting people on the internet would launch against the US government. Anoynomous would have a field day, both in their amount of sheer rage at it getting successfully passed, and then shortly thereafter going on a hacking spree within Government sites. Congress, White House, heck even the pentagon would likely end up hacked several times over.

ZachLight , November 19th, 2011, 1:19 pm

As people have said above me, even if they some how got it passed, it would be overruled by supreme court, and then be finalized to never be brought up again. The only time these stupid music, t.v., and other money grubbing business men will get money off us is, yes, downloading illegally, and making a profit off their work. NOT to also mention that sprites, like Sonic, are ok. Sega practically said if WE the people don't make money off it, then we can use it however we please, this then transcended to other big game companies to say the same thing. If this bill did pass, a lot of characters, fan made, or made from scratch, would probably be deleted because they had some thing on it. And theirs the free speech thing... Honestly though, the government is quite stupid. Kick out every one and put in some actual intellectual people instead of old guys from the 50s. We might actually see things improve. And of course, if i'm called out on this, I know I know, but honestly, the U.S. congress only keeps the oldest people around that are more Amish then any thing else. Oh, and if this bill passed to, it would affect Cell Phones too....so not just internet, say good bye to your cell phones every one.

(Guest) , November 20th, 2011, 9:05 am

just a suggestion: sign it tons of times, but keep changing the name

DarkAngel98 , November 21st, 2011, 10:02 pm

As another author once said, "OH HELL NO!"

MercenaryX , December 1st, 2011, 7:39 pm

Worst part is that the Dems and Obma is pushing this bill. Think about it, they could silence anything they feel is bad. Like sprite comic, fan comics, music, the list goes on, this crap scares me because the Government can prosecute you even when the Copyright hold doesn't want to push charges. Even if you have permission from the owner you can still be charged, look at what is happening to the Gibson Guitar company, they are being charged for illegally getting wood from India, but India said Gibson is buying legal wood, and both Gibson and India have the paper work to prove it and the government still wants to push it. Now take that example and apply it to anything on the net or information.

hedge the hog (Guest) , September 23rd, 2012, 8:46 pm

If obama wins this elections and dosen't veto this I'm going to start a underground internet club so we can watch what we (no porn though). If this happens, say "I" so you can join.

SilverDruid , December 4th, 2012, 6:00 pm

@SteamingBullet: I...Second EVERYTHING you just said! :thumbsup:
