"The Internet is For Porn" entered into official SOPA debate record

Video Link.

Rep. Jared Polis (Colorado Democrat who previously founded BlueMountainArts.com) has entered the complete lyrics of "The Internet is for Porn" into the official record of the SOPA debate.

    1. He’s against the bill. By the virtue of him KNOWING about this video, it’s kind of obvious he’s internet friendly. That and him founding a huge internet pioneer company. Sadly he’s one of like four congress people actually trying to stop this thing :(

  1. I really do appreciate how he managed to link supporting SOPA with supporting the porn industry.  That is truly masterful bullshitting right there.

  2. He makes a good point, in that pornographers have perfectly valid copyrights, which are probably violated much more frequently, and at greater “”losses” to the copyright holder than all of the mainstream industries combined.If passed, you would basically being giving the porn industry control of 90% of the internet (90% seems about right for the % of the internet that is porn, right?)

    1. In fact, thinking about it now, porn is probably one of the few things that if people were denied a free way of getting it actually *would* result in additional sales for the creators.

      1. Well, not really. If you do the, ahem, research, you’ll notice that a lot of the porn out there is in fact produced by amateurs. Which poses another set of legal questions all together; but the point is that even if you could hypotheticaly completely remove all “professional” porn from free access, there would still be a lot of porn around.

  3. Give’s me an idea for a commercial:

    “Hello, my name is Ron Jeremy. You may know me from such well regarded films as “Orgasmo” and “Back Door Bandits”. I’m here with my political soul mate, Lamar Smith, to stop piracy! They’re stealing my (ahem!) hard earned money! Please support me by supporting SOPA, today!”

  4. Speaking of SOPA, it looks like the corporatist scum are trying to pull a fast one…

    via Reddit: [my emphasis added]

    SOPA has NOT been postponed to 2012! The Committee members who support SOPA quietly changed the hearing date to December 21st, trying to trick the American people into thinking it was over for the year. This is dirty politics and should be illegal. Fight back. Let them know this is not over.

  5. Let’s create “Polis’ Law”. It is like “Godwin’s Law” but stipulate that if in a debate you declare something to be “for Porn” then you are completely losing the argument.

  6. Ah, here it is. “The Internet is for Porn” enacted by World of Warcraft characters and posted on Youtube. If this isn’t about what’s at stake, I don’t know what is.

  7. Representing 80027! Good old’ Polis… I just loved his fight, his energy, his loud “aye” votes for the record. One of the few guys and gal to be proud of is this whole miserable clusterfuck.

  8.  Porn is rather benign compared to SOPA. Internet porn is just debauchery.

    SOPA codifies Droit de Signeur and legal rape on the Internet.
    Actually, it’s morally superior to use the Internet exclusively for porn.

  9. I’m just sitting here trying to picture someone solemnly entering, “so grab your dick and double-click for porn Porn PORN!” into the Congressional Record.  XD

  10. Xeni, why did you link to a bad Warcraft machina video for this song, instead of to the actual performance of it by those that created it – Avenue Q? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33-bACeB8C0&feature=related
