New York Shitty Photos du Jour: The Pulaski Bridge

As taken today January 18th, 2012.

Since I am vaguely on the subject, I would like to take a moment to bring two pieces of legislation to everyone’s attention: the Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Act, better known as “SOPA” and “PIPA”. While I have little doubt most of you are already aware of what these are about, PC World has a rather balanced article on the subject which can be read here.

Speaking for myself— and New York Shitty being my web site I am going to take the liberty of tendering my two cents— I am against SOPA and PIPA. I, as many others, will readily concede online piracy is a problem. However, these pieces of legislation have— at least potentially— very serious ramifications. Ramifications which could endanger sites like this one.* I would also be remiss if I did not point out that some of the supporters of SOPA and PIPA are habitual plagiarizers of this site. I will leave it to your powers of deduction to determine about whom I am writing.

In any case if any of you, dear readers, agree with my take and want to add your voice to the opposition (which includes Internet notables such as Craigslist, Google and Wikipedia, among others) you can sign an online petition protesting SOPA and PIPA by clicking here. Thank you.

*Which today was cited by Mayoral candidate Tom Allon as: “…one of the great bulwarks against corruption and incompetence we have in this city.”
