a CNN article about it
By the way, the definition of "war" by Google is this;
A state of armed conflict between different nations or states or different groups within a nation or state.Well, it's a state of digitally armed conflict between different groups. But it's not just within a nation, it's across the globe.
But the thing is, if you named this a war, would be that we really can't decide which is evil and good.
I do think it's a good thing to block websites distributing copyright material, but I'm afraid of the consequences- maybe it might lead to censorship so no one can say bad stuff about the government ect.
But when web services protest against the bill with a very good reason (to stop potential censorship), they are also encouraging online piracy
- which is good?
Well,it's up to you.
