Okay so SOPA is back, guys. This time it’s trying to make streaming copyrighted material a felony. Do you know what that means? It means you can be charged and even do jail time for
- Making fanart
- Covering a song
- If there’s a song on on the background of a video, it still counts
- Writing fanfiction
There’s a petition to stop it from happening, and it still needs 53,000 signatures so please sign it here
I reblogged this because I can’t sign it again. If you live in the US - sign it, it takes about two minutes. Then if you have five minutes, instead of two, call your congress(wo)man and explain to them that we know they live in the pockets of the mega-corperations behind the media but that if that’s what they’re doing(and it is), limiting access actually reduces income and every statistic proves it. So if they want to keep getting fat
bribes, I’m sorry, campaign contributions from Disney/NBC/SONY/etc then they should chill the fuck out and open their doors instead of closing them.
Countless articles cry out for with the same request: work with the internet instead of against it!
Change is slow and difficult but hey it could happen. So call your politicians and tell them we know that what matters to them is moneye. To quote Lewis Black, business and politics have been in bed together for years. Fine. We’re willing to support that because we don’t have any other choice It would be nice if for once the lawmakers in this country could be smart about it rather than cutting off everyone’s nose to spite statistics and facts and reality’s face.
Told were the press rooms for Teen Wolf, Vikings and the amazing press experience for a panel called The Character of Music which featured the composers and creators of Teen Wolf, Hannibal, and Black Sails. To say that the coverage wrangled was amazing is an understatement - the actors and creative teams were so giving of their time and insight. As soon as I can everything - all my video will be up and so will blog posts. Time and internet is limited but watch this space. It will fill. Promise.
However, not to be remiss - I want to thank Tyler Posey for giving our table in the press room the first recorded video of him calling his fiancée a fiancée and wish him a huge congrats on his engagement! I already said mazel tov, Tyler but I still mean it. I’d say I couldn’t be more excited for you but you were so excited to talk about it clearly there are higher excitement levels to be reached. Congratulations!
