Attention fellow deviants! SOPA has returned, and dA is at risk of being shut down because of this! This is real, people. People's jobs are at stake. We need 100,000 signatures by September 21st if we want any hope of getting rid of SOPA. Please sign the petition and spread the word. It's urgent!


EDIT: Okay, so may may be overreacting a tad bit. After I first saw this on some other journals, I panicked and wrote this immediately. Since then, I have done some research and found that it is mostly video related. However, I still think that it is a threat to sites that have fan-related materials. After all, the bill did state that websites with infringements would be shut down. So please keep enforcing the petition and spreading the word. We can stop SOPA for good.

UPDATE: WE DID IT!!!!!!! There are 100,686 signatures as of now. Thank you SO MUCH to everyone that signed the petition! :glomp:

Damn. And where's the government where we need them? Plus, maybe if they don't want fan art,  it's still gonna be there, like on fb and stuff. Got some very angry people if that happens...

Of all the ridiculous things our government tries to do, and does, this is by far the worst thing I've ever heard them try to do! Seriously, going to jail for posting fan art? Really? Grrrrrr....

Oh all the ridiculous things our government tries to do, and does, this is by far the worst thing I've ever heard them try to do! Seriously, going to jail for posting fan art? Really? If they try this stunt again and it passes, I'll be the first one in chains. Grrrrrr....

If they arrest one of us, they'll have to arrest all of us. We will stick together and fight the power! Then, when all the prisons are filled with fanartists and the's no room for real criminals, they'll realize how stupid SOPA is.

SOPA (the stop online piracy act) is a bill that is trying to make copyright infringement a felony. So if you were to post some fanart or cover a song, for example, you could be sent to jail.
