Guys --
Many of you have probably heard about SOPA and PIPA but for those of you who haven't, you absolutely NEED to get informed. This is a law that has potential to be put into action that will censor and severely cripple the internet as we know it. If you think this only applies to piracy and file sharing you're WRONG. If you think this only applies to the US you are also wrong. If companies like Facebook, Google, eBay, Amazon, Twitter, Reddit, etc have to shut down due to loss of revenue from this bill, YOU will lose them too. If your a gamer this will also kill a great many things you enjoy (just google how).

Not only is this a gross violation of your first amendment rights and net neutrality laws, but this will HEAVILY impact the modding community for our phones. Just think about it: anything potentially copy written can and will be blocked. There is vague limitations to what is intellectual property and what is not. Like running HTC_IME? Good luck finding it. Roms that incorporate skin interfaces (ie blur)? Forget it, blocked. The list goes on and on. If even ONE of these is found on a website like DF, the whole site will be blocked from your view.

At this point, anything is game. For example, companies like Monster cable want to deny you the right to resell their product via craigslist that YOU PAID FOR! See how deep this rabbit hole goes?

You NEED to do something about this, this isn't the time to "sit one out" anymore. Please sign these:



Spread this like wildfire, you are the only thing standing in the way of this from becoming a reality.
