Like all prior emergencies, I will allow no activity on Max-igami except for comments on this post, until further notice. 

Remember SOPA, that horrible internet bill that would ban fan fiction? It died. But it came back from the dead! It’s zombie SOPA! Well, it’s not completely the same as SOPA, it’s just one part of it.

The Obama Administration is trying to bring back a part that says you can’t show anything copyrighted online. Sounds good, right? No. In this case, it means that you can’t post a song on YouTube for people to listen to if the song is copyrighted.  And the Beatles are still copyrighted , so the guy who posted this video would be considered a criminal if this thing got passed:

And Minecraft is copyrighted, so a Let’s Play video of Minecraft would also be considered illegal. Many innocent people have uploaded Let’s Play videos of Minecraft, and countless other copyrighted games, to honour those games! Yet, under this potential law, they wouldn’t be honouring the games, they would be violating them! That’s just crazy. Under this law, this stooky video by Tobuscus would be illegal:

And the song Happy Birthday is still copyrighted, so if you uploaded a video of you singing that song to YouTube, you could get sent to jail!

This is very bad. If you wanna sign the email petition, go here: http://cms.fightforthefuture.org/sopas-back/.

Peace out, and May the Force be with you. Remember that the government is not the Force. Well, they are, but most of the people in the government are on the dark side. Not all of them, but most of them. The dark side is strong, but it is not stronger. Remember that.

    Well that is nosssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssstrul!!!!!

    And who said Happy Birthday was copyrighted?

    Happy Birthday to you,
    Happy birthday to you,
    Happy Birthday to ????
    Happy birthday to you.

    Oops, I copyrighted it. That’s how ridiculous it is.

    • Believe it or not, dead people have copyright. I’m serious. People have copyright protection in the USA for 70 years after they’re dead. That’s how the song still has copyright. So, let’s say George Lucas dies when he’s 80. He’s 69 right now, so he would die in 11 years. 11 plus 70 is 81, so he would have copyright protection 81 years after this year. So, if he died at 80, he would have copyright on Star Wars until 2094!
      And the Happy Birthday song probably won’t lose copyright until 2030.

    @maxigami, I just learned that it was fake, someone created a website PRETENDING to be the government , actually if the law was passed we couldn’t rp, so he was rping as the government!

    oh… but the fandoms, they signed a petition so it could… If this law was passed,
    Think about it…
    We… The people of the origami yoda and Eu.
    The eu would end.
    Origami yoda is a copyrighted site.

    Tom wouldn’t do that, he’d still let us.

    But what about bulbepedia? It would have to be shut down. All the games of copyrighted things on roblox would be deleted. Anything not made by the actual company would be shut down. I would have to change my gravitar. So would max. So would SB Artoo. So would TEJ. So would deante. So would Kyle. So would Landon. So would Bradly.

  6. Reblogged this on Fork and Spoon Blog and commented:

    Max’s rules don’t apply to this site so keep partying and after the party is over, we can have a SOPA is stupid party!

    • That’s a great idea! Also, I haven’t heard any good or bad news about Zombie SOPA so the emergency on this site is off, but keep a close eye on any SOPA-related news. That party is gonna be stooky! Maybe I should have it, too.
