SOPA Will Cut Deeper Than Piracy
I’ll make this blunt, if SOPA/PIPA pass in their current form RadioInsight is dead.
I’m not a pirate. But this bill is way too vague to prevent any site with any minor connection to big media to escape the crosshairs.
The first domain registration I report on could be met with a takedown. Every entry posted on our boards (And every other message board or comment left on any website) will have to be filtered and manually approved. Every bit of audio posted on our three aircheck sites will also be at risk of one takedown request shutting down the site. All unwarranted, but it wouldn’t matter since there will be no way to prove innocence without lots of money and resources along with lost time.
And so glad to see radio stations like 96X in Norfolk, VA getting into the act as well in explaining why.
