This don't look good, brothas. Assuming what they're saying is correct. If goes though, we may be seeing the twilight of the wild west internet.

It's also worth noting that this would make lets plays and walkthroughs illegal.

Is this going to affect anyone outside of America? Australia already has its own thing set up.

Technically, no, but considering most big online businesses have their base in America, it'll filter out to the rest of the world pretty quick.

Oh shit, I just realized, if this goes through, Miracle of Sounds songs might not be able to have video anymore. Which would suck.

Yep, but apparently it's looking like it doesn't have nearly as many sponsors as they thought it would, and may not go through.

Oh, no doubt. But the question is what will happen AFTER it possibly passes.

Also, there's always the possibility that one could win a lot of voters by promising to repeal such a doohicky

I'm worried about it getting passed, but I'm not so sure it'll stick. We may just have a few months of everything getting censored to fuck, then things going back to normal.

Or it may not get passed at all and life will go on.

I'd say that if it gets passed than all the major internet based companies like facebook and twitter (Who would be effectively shut down by this law) will simply migrate to England, Ireland, Canada and Australia and continue as normal, meaning the only thing the US will reap from this will be the complete destruction of one of the things it's best at.

The problem is, it costs a hell of a lot of money to migrate servers, especially for companies like Facebook, Twitter and Google who have most of their servers in the U.S.A.
And considering how the American congress men who want the bill to pass are boasting about how it would destroy or block all access to a server, there's no point in moving them as well if the bill does get accepted.

But it only blocks them to the American market. I think massive moving costs is preferable to not being able to operate at all. If the bill goes through, FB, Youtube and such will all be held totally accountable for whatever anyone says on them. They'll just have to cater more to the developing world, China and Europe.
