Thoughts on SOPA from New Orleans
In which Hank walks around the French Quarter and discusses the freaking sweet internet blackout that resulted in a great number of congresspeople dropping their support for SOPA and PIPA. The internet is coming into it’s own as a powerful political force, and just in time to face serious threats.
Note: All buskers in this video received at least a $5 tip. Posting a video of a busker is a really interesting intellectual property discussion, actually. If I were to take 20 videos of that one man band and create a YouTube channel all about him and then make a bunch of money off of it and not give him any, that would clearly be wrong, but it would not (as far as I can tell) be illegal. He’s performing in a public space and I am thus allowed to record him. It’s another example of the rule “don’t be a dick” being far more important than any law congress can pass on copyright reform.
We are entering a brave new world here, thank you for standing up for the internet, helping to defeat SOPA and PIPA, and thinking deeply about these issues.
Man I wish there was a transcription of this video……
Dear nation: Do you need sweeping? If so, my new book is available and ready for the job.
^That’s John Green’s Tumblr, you should follow him if you aren’t following him already, because he’s all kinds of awesome.
Or if you are already following him, you should unfollow him and then click the follow button again. Then you can say you followed him twice :p
Do you have your copy of The Fault in Our Stars yet? :]
