Is SOPA Dead? No, not yet.

Everybody has heard about the SOPA issue. The president of the US said he would not support it. So some headlines not read ‘SOPA is Dead.’ The is not altogether true.¬† The bill can be revised and approved again and next time may become law..

The point being overlooked is very simple. Money. Who0 will gain or lose the most.? Granted, many file sharing web sites are in violation of the Copyright laws. But the blatant file-sharing web sites make a lot of money for the owners. A lot of money.

Surely I am not the only one that things Hollywood needs ton direct their attention to other sways of protecting their works. Let’s take for an sample 3-D movies.

At the present time the is no way the impact of a 3D movie is a big screen theater filled with a live audience can be reproduced in a poor copy of the movie on a home computer. It is not the same experience. The medium is the message. The studios need to produce top quality files that people are willing  to patronize..

The laws that already exist do help control copyright violation.  They need to be enforced. Telling people something is free went nit is not is fraud. That is a crime. The file-sharing websites are telling people they may download copyrighted movies and TV shows. Not true. Those sites deserve to be shut down.

Although SOPA is not now law, piracy of others people’s property still is a crime.
