Before SOPA kills stuff like this....

It is amazing how little awareness German media gives to SOPA, yet another try to undermine the freedom of the internet, in line with many other scary developments in the US. Maybe awareness will change when tomorrow some major websites, including Wikipedia, will go offline in protest. As always, if SOPA happens, we will face similar laws in Europe soon, the web community will find ways around them, and then new, other laws will come up. Remember the declaration of independence of cyberspace from 1996 (!!):

"Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather." 

We desperately need an internet bill of rights, just like we have universal human rights. Until then, quickly before you go to jail, get tortured and excommunicated for stuff like this, enjoy:
