    Lots of stuff being pulled off youtube due to copyright infringement. Half my channel is gone. Torrent sites shutting down, owners hauled into court by the Feds.

    Kind of interesting, since SOPA etc didn't pass.

    That's interesting. The laws all failed in Congress, some major power is obviously behind it. Any guess?

    I'm guessing that the studios and content providers are taking matters into their own hands and spending some big money on lawyers. Probably some illegal collusion going on too.

    Let's make sure to keep this thread clean of any talk of illegal sites.
