SOPA is dead, but the war isn’t over

Mashable announced these days that SOPA is dead and after a short while Megaupload was shut down. It seems that you do not need the censorship outlined in those bills since you can already police the web pretty effective.

IMO, I think Megaupload should have died a good while ago along with other services like these. Yes, who hasn’t used piracy sites or filesharing services to send out illegal copies of songs? Yes, we are all saints. NOT. Well, it turn out that all things come to an end and if it is proven that some sites deserve to be shut down, then by all means, go for it.

What I didn’t liked about the Megaupload seizure is that users who weren’t infringing any possible law have no access to their data. Bad thing.

As for SOPA/PIPA it is possible that they will emerge as new bills. We won the battle, but not the war.

Below we can see some technical details regarding the US censorship. If China has its Internet Firewall, that doesn’t mean that we (US and other democracies) need to follow in their footsteps. The infographic is brought to you by Lumin Interactive and Condor Consulting. Neat fact to see in it.
