I posted a video about this in the Other People's Videos section, but I think it is important enough for us to watch. Yes, this is happening in the EU, but it could effect the internet as a whole in a very negative way. I know a lot of us read news sources from overseas. It's something I've always done. My stance on news is to look at news sources from both sides in the USA, and, if possible, look at a few from overseas. Somewhere in all of that is the truth.
This could end up actually shuttering a lot of websites. Even places like Wikipedia aren't safe. Google isn't safe. This is scary, and it could effect everyone, even outside of the EU.
And this is happening very quickly. So give these a watch. If you want a quick run through, go to the second and third videos.
