It really is the end of the world.
This cannot be happening!
I hope this will be stopped soon!!
Warning: This is a General statement set at a general population of the crowd topic and not at any specific individuals though a few of you may find yourself right in the area I am talking about.
First off again, I dont support any of these bills except maybe OPEN. However, You guys need to be real with yourselfs. Come to the fact that, Piracy is indeed wrong, and its illegal and it always has been, its not just not being illegal. Sites like this is illegal, regardless of the reason here, we are all in the wrong, everyone here, the government, people who download stuff that has copy-write (I know I do.). None of us are total victims we all played a part in this and we are ALL in the wrong. I dont doubt this is more about Power than Piracy, I dont doubt that at all.
You can play the blame game all you want, but at least be honest with yourselves on what exactly is going on here. People work tirelessly around the clock to bring you these anime, mangas, Jdramas etc etc, just because you cant afford it doesnt make it any less wrong to pirate it or to share it. While I dont condon the sudden action of closing megauplod, I also dont condone see the people who did it as villainous because they have every right to do so the law says so. I know if I made my living of an Anime I wouldnt want to lose profits that support me because people dont want to pay for the product. These guys are not rich, the creators are not rich, the companies are but they are not the creators. They live off this stuff, their lifes work. Please think about all this the next time you are about to type out how unfair this all is, before you imply you have done nothing wrong, before you throw blame on an entire country and not yourself. This is how we got into this situation in the first place, by acting like that.
However as it has indeed been said the only thing we can do is work against ACTA (and for US Citizens CPACT (this is just as important.)) and hope to continue on as a community in hopefully a safe manner.

oh no!the end is near!damn the people who proposed this...
2012... so it has started. Well I heard that SOPA died so I hope that the other filehosting sites come back especially MU D: Seriously, why did they have to take something so precious to us T.T I just want to meet them upfront and slap them silly those who made the stupid bill :L Well I can't do anything else but complain so I would probably just hope for the best. LIVE ON OS!!!
well now... this sounds like a downward spiral of the internet... this sucks
hey, what if we buy an anime an upload it here? At least DVD or blu ray anime have a better quality and it hasnt censored as the television version.
SOPA and PIPA may be gone but they have an Another Evil Sibling Called ACTA. ACTA was passed. Seems that they used SOPA and PIPA as a distraction so that we all wouldnt notice it. if you dont know what ACTA is please Read about it now.
for those who dont to like to read heres a little explaination.
Man lots of stuff has happened in such a short amount of time but oh well hopefully everything will be back to normal soon I guess for now we wait and see
OS is the only site left that has online streaming animes. Other sites are all just dead links! I'm scared to think of what happens next!
sometimes we need to pass terrible laws and rules just to find out how bad they are. They can act as a well-established warning to future generations, "Don't make this mistake." If it really is that bad and passes, it'll be reverted soon enough and then we'll have a great precedent for the future.
I know that sounds kind of sad-masochistic, but just remember the internet is only about 20 years old. That's nothing in legal terms. If this doesn't pass now then surely something like it will eventually.
*sigh...* man, if this continues, this planet will be so boring to live on...
I just don't get it. Internet was made as a universal network everyone could acces and no-one could control but now because some miljonairs wanne have even more money and try to contol it making everyone suffer. I just hate it, luckely Holland is quit tollerant on the matter, but thats only a verry smal part of the world. I sure hope some of those buisnesmen get some sort of revelation and forget about controling the internet or everyone is bothered by it.

You dont have to accept it, Keeping Fighting it. The moment that people start to give up is the moment that it is all over. Sure we may have a small break now but this is far from over.
@vocaloid123, you will just accept it without doing anything? *Facepalm*
Its like giving up on a race without starting your engine.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing
