There's similar threats happening in Canada. I think it was bundled with the omnibus crime bill up here or Bill C11 or something. They keep changing it's name so much it's hard to keep track. I wouldn't be surprised if Harper snuck it by our noses while we're distracted with the American one seeing as how he likes to do things underhanded that way.

It's happening in Canada too? I thought it was only America.

Also, deviantart can't be "blocked" necessarily, since SOPA only cuts off ads/payment services to a site. But I can see where the confusion would come from *has been researching the bill*

Happy New Year!

Please take a moment to look up what's happening in Canada with potential passing of Stop Online Piracy Act (Bill C10) because it will very likely affect ALL deviantArt users. Once you've done that please also consider signing the petition and passing it along (OpenMedia is in charge of the petition).

We don't want dA to be blocked or worse over no fault of it's own occasionally having a dishonest or ignorant user posting suspicious content. Under SOPA they would take action without warrant and ask questions later (I wouldn't trust that process to be as speedy as the dead halt of service).

Apologies for not including links here myself but I don't want to be flagged as spam for being a concern community member.
