I hope that ALL United States Cheat Happens members are contacting their local representatives in opposition to these pieces of legislation. These bills could heavily restrict the information we currently have access to today. I think that even sites like CH would face blacklisting under these laws. For those of you that think I am reaching on this one, please consider the fact that many of the major production companies work to make cheats and trainers non-functional. Therefore, they may see this website as an infringement of their intellectual property as it bypasses aspects of their programming. It would not simply be the torrent sites and limewire-like sites that would face shutdown. The implications could be boundless as various corporations and of course governments could claim various components of information to be their intellectual property. Sites like Wikipedia and Wikileaks would be quickly blacklisted. Speaking strictly as it effects gaming; consider that sites posting unauthorized walk-throughs and cheats could be shut down. Say good bye to You-Tube and other sites... they provide too much opportunity for unauthorized content. Contact your local representatives and ask them to shut down these pieces of legislation.
Find your House Representative by entering your zip code at this Link
Find your Senate Representative by selecting your state at this Link

These sites will provide you with contact information for your various representatives. You can call them, write them, email them, etc. Send them a message whether you are young or old. Even if you are not old enough to vote, you will be one day and they want to obtain re-election in the future.

I was pleased to see major sites show some effort.
Now if only we could have Facebook to join in...

Perhaps I spoke too soon... Link


Mod Edit: It is fine to post news links, but do not encourage illegal activity on the website. DDoS attacks are illegal.

I heard that Anonymous did more than take out the sites listed in that article, they took down a few government sites from what I have heard.

Please leave them out... They aren't all that great.. There just a hype.. Go find Krypt3ia on WP for example.. ( Linky: wp.me/ppHXk-2GV )
But on another note, hear about ACTA? Link: www.international.gc.ca/trade-agreements-accords-commerciaux/assets/pdfs/acta-crc_apr15-2011_eng.pdf

Now that is a pretty scary world wide agreement, it still is in progress but lots of country's already signed it.. This agreement is as wide open as it can be with wording, so if governments take the chance, they will have have full control..


On subject of the links, i do not intend to break the rules, but only to provide a different view towards anon.. Alot of poeple seem to think they are god and almighty.. They aren't.. The link merely provides a view from someone in the industry that actually knows what he is talking about..

All they did was use LOIC and HOIC among themselves to temporarily bar access to certain websites thinking they took them down.

But this wasn't done by Anonymous, but people on 4chan thinking they are anonymous.

I remember the thread clearly, and myself making them look stupid in the process.

I think I signed a petition against ACTA a couple months ago. I cant remember for sure though.

It really takes more than signing petitions... you need to make your voice heard via phone calls and emails to the elected reps in your district and state. People often think that this does nothing, but being a political activist for as long as I can remember... the only thing that sways these politicians from the lobbyists point-of-view is the onslaught of calls and emails from constituents. If you want to make an even larger impact... stop into one of their offices and speak to them directly when they are not in D.C. They may try and sway you to the side of the lobbyists, but as long as you have educated yourself on the matter you can often find yourself swaying them, or at the very least find them submitting to the fact that numerous constituents are voicing similar concerns.

ACTA has gone though so many of the European Union checkpoints that it becoming reality is inevitable at this point. Your best bet would be to contact for revisions to better suit net neutrality. It's actually pretty old but never got the attention it needed unlike SOPA (since ACTA did not original in the US).

Americans really like to focus their political scope to only inside their borders.
