SOPA in Brazil: Law by deputy Walter Feldman

This is the photo of the Honorable Deputy Walter Feldman, who this week idealized the international archived SOPA law for Brazil.

As we saw last month, the beginning of the bill formulated in the United States, caused the famous file sharing site between Megaupload users to be taken down by the FBI agency.

Despite all the piracy policy, there were many users who had accounts on the site, and used it for the correct purposes, sending large files over the network to other users, as well as singers and artists who made a video shortly after the site was closed, saying they liked and used Megaupload, days later removed from the site by the label (posted by other users).

It does not help Mr. Walter Feldman to try to stop the internet, since there are several ways to achieve success in accessing any blocked website in the country, as well as in China.

In China, more veteran users use peer-to-peer networks to get into sites blocked by the local government.

The peer-to-peer network works in a decentralized way, not using any central server to distribute a certain content, that is, taking a website down would not be that easy.

One of the best known P2P networks (peer-to-peer) for internet browsing, is the TOR network (link here), which allows the user to access content that is blocked in their own country.

Although the P2P network is still considered slow by internet standards today, however with Law projects like these, it tends to grow a lot, because the more users connected to the P2P network, the faster it will be, and this is the main bottleneck.

Block the internet and people's freedom of expression? Solution: Cut the cable.
