We're not getting SOPAwned. Not now, not ever. by QuietCrystal We're not getting SOPAwned. Not now, not ever. by QuietCrystal
SOPA needs to stop. Now.

The passing of SOPA will mean that a lot of stuff you used to enjoy doing will never be available for you again.

Remember the Nuzlocke comic you read previously? Illegal.
Remember the last anime you enjoyed? Site taken down.
Remember the animation from a TV show? Blocked
Remember the fan fiction you last read? The owner is now a criminal.

Do you do fan art? If yes, you could face time in jail.

It's not going to be a nice sight when SOPA is passed. Let's not make it happen.

Feel free to save this picture, and upload it elsewhere for the world to be aware. No credits are needed, as long as the link at the bottom remains there. Do not remove it.

Edit: Here's another way to protest against SOPA. Click on this [link] and check out the info there.

===

Anyway I thought I'd try out a simpler style in this picture. It's not as elaborate and fancy as my normal pictures, but I'm simply aiming to get my point across.

By the way I imagined the characters saying different stuff while in the picture.
Bulbasaur: Nuuu I got erased T-T
Squirtle: MUST. SAVE. BULBA!
Charmander: RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN
Pikachu: Y U NO STOP SOPA?
Eevee: T.T
Cubone: NONONONONO
It's probably all in caps too. So I just left it that way.

Also, the contest in :iconpoke-request-love: gave me an excuse to draw this picture too :D

OMG. Talk about being unfair. I thought this bill was mainly to go after the companies illegally making money from copyrighted work, not go after the little people, who make appreciation art of stuff they love. And there wont be much left on the internet if this passes as originality is a rare thing these days.

Well we'll be forced to just draw OCs, if we're drawing stuff/making comics. That might boost creativity, but when there's so many OCs, none will be popular :P It kills off the Pokemon fanbase too.

I would make calls, but I live in Canada so I might get charged long distance. I don't know if I will or not, but I don't want to take the risk since I still live at home. I heard that SOPA has stopped for now due to all the people against it, but I'm unsure if it really is true or not.

Not take away Pokemon. It'll still be there, but fan art of Pokemon contains copyrighted characters. So essentially we're criminals.

Fanart ISNT piracy! Its your own creation, based off of something that exists.
And who the hell got permission to restrict art? It may be fanart but it's art nonetheless. That should be the crime. You don't put art in a box. You don't fence it in.
You don't put people in jail for DOING WHAT THEY LOVE!!
This art is our pride and joy, and what the hell happened to freedom of speech? It's not piracy! We're not selling it!
That's so LOW. Even for them. Thats the lowest of the low right there.

It won't pass, and even if it does, do you know how many new prisons have to be built to hold these people? and how to catch them? They'll need moderators on 24/7 working slave wages to try to stop everything. It's really hard to manage. I'm more concerned about PIPA. I understand the Stop online piracy act, and what it's trying to do, but it's very impractical with it's approach and the ends don't justify the means. If they really want to stop piracy all together, they should attack CBS and sue them. That's right. One of the main supporters of SOPA is responsible for Limewire and other piracy software. Check here if you don't believe me (and he also provides sources in the description) : [link]

All they have to do is take down my Pokemon fan art, make it illegal, and start ruining other people's art too. That would definitely spoil my day.
