No to SOPA! Yes to Freedom!

News on SOPA: I guess most of you are aware already of what have just happened: FBI closed Megaupload and arrested 7 of their owners, even without SOPA at all. The war has just begun.


I am an artist, and author. I live thanks to the internet. I, as much others, use Creative Commons Licenses to display and SHARE our work all over the web… all over the world. We want, we want, and we hope for a free culture, we, the authors. And still, even if delivering our creations for free to the people, we can still make profit for that and make a living.


Who the F*ck doesn’t use servers, P2P or anything of the like nowadays? From a CD album, the artist himself is only profitting from the 5% or even less!
We have to finish with the intermediaries… they are the real cancer, not us, the users! The culture is for the users, for the people! And we are the people.

Against SOPA!


Contra la SOPA!
