Everyone is speaking out on SOPA these days, which means there is no fucking way in hell it will pass next week when it goes to vote. It won’t pass. Already, more than half of those who first supported the bill have reversed their positions.
Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe also has an opinion on the matter, seeing as he’s in one of the biggest bands going right now. Resolution — in stores Tuesday.
He has offered up his opinion on file-sharing and the recent attack on Megaupload, which spawned a backlash by hacktivists against record label sites and the Department of Justice’s online home.
“I would like to see some of these fucks look into their own data bases, catalog everything there, then release a statement w/#’s,” writes Blythe. “#’s that show EXACTLY how much of their content is copyrighted material and how much is stuff that falls under public domain.
“These websites are not some sort of altruistic creative expression charities,” Blythe offers. “They are multi-million dollar BUSINESSES.
“It’s all about money, and the few that REALLY make it. Don’t even fucking kid yourselves that it’s anything else. People are all like ‘fuck the music business fucks!’ AS IF the owners of these file sharing sites aren’t just digital oil sheiks themselves. WAKE UP.”
Amen to that.
