  1. This is an interesting subject to keep eyes on. There seem to be growing rhetoric over online piracy and strong copyright bills lately. Last week or so, the copyright bill (technically-called 'Stop Online Piracy Act' ) was introduced in the US House of Representatives. The bill intended to crack down on allegedly copyright-infringing websites or "rogue" websites. It has so far been met with strong resistance. Some fear that it would limit the freedom of internet. Rep. Zoe Lofgren, the California Democrat whose district includes the heart of Silicon Valley, claimed that Copyright bill is the 'end of the Internet'. I am personally wondering then how to stop file sharing in popular social network sites like Facebook or twitter or youtube...
