No. Definitely a shutdown. If you only knew how many of the videos had copyrighted content in them, you'd realize the impossibility of salvaging youtube.
Any time the government gets involved with anything, it gets messed up even more than before. They start regulating schools closely, and suddenly running on the playground, the game of dodgeball, and peanut butter sandwiches are banned and pizza becomes a vegetable. (I'm not making any of this up)
Letting the government get near the internet is as reckless as letting the fox guard the henhouse.
Yeah I heard pizza is consider vegetable. About YouTube, what about the video from the official artist? Instead of our government spending tax dollar on useless **** on bills. They should be fixing the budget crisis. I wasn't suprised that IGN supports SOPA and PIPA. Afterall IGN is owned by Fox
