Please, please, do the right thing and DON'T do the full version of the blackout. DO NOT not buy a single book, song, movie ticket or game for a whole month. Boycott the companies supporting the bills all you want, but by doing a blanket boycott, you are doing more harm than good.

I work in a small, independent bookshop. We specialize in nursing and medical textbooks, and we make most of our sales through mail order. Our competitor? AMAZON. Yes, that is who we are up against, and it's a constant struggle.

For big businesses like for example Elsevier (a publishing house supporting SOPA), a big dent in profits for the month of March will be noticed, but it will not give them too much worries. For small publishing houses, bookshops etc? A big dent in profits for the month of March can spell doom. It can even bring a business to its knees. I'm pretty sure it's the same for small, independent recording houses, filmmakers etc.

So please continue to buy books, music and movies. Support those companies that are against SOPA/PIPA. You can find a list of them here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_organizations_with_official_stances_on_the_Stop_Online_Piracy_Act.
If you are doing the boycott, do it wisely, and boycott only those companies that support the bills.

BE SMART, people. Don't blindly shoot without knowing who you're hitting, and why you're even shooting.

Black March - Thursday March 1st 2012 to Saturday March 31st 2012 With the continuing campaigns for internet-censoring litigation such as SOPA and PIPA, and the closure of sites like Megaupload under allegations of 'piracy' and 'conspiracy' the time has come to take a stand against music, film, and media companies' lobbyists. The only way is to hit them where it hurts. Their profit margins. March 2012 is the end of the First Quarter in economic reports world wide. Do not buy a single record. Do not download a single song, legally or illegally. Do not go to see a single film in cinemas, or download a copy. Do not buy a DVD in the stores. Do not buy a videogame. Do not buy a single book or magazine. Wait the four weeks to buy them in April: see a film later, etc... Holding out for just four weeks, maximum, will leave a gaping hole in media companies profits for the first quarter, an economic hit which will in turn be observed by governments world wide as stocks and shares will blip from a large enough loss of incomes. This action will give a statement of intent: "We will not tolerate the Media Industries' lobbying for legislation that will censor the internet."

And if you do not feel like taking a total break and perhaps want just a trial separation or couple's counseling, then perhaps consider Black March Lite 2.0 = spend, but spend money on those content creators and independent retailers who came out against SOPA/PIPA.  And tell them why you're buying their products in March.  There are many of them.

And for those who favor the more targeted boycott, you can find info  here.  But no matter which,  you can participate and you can tailor your level of participation.  We have the tools, the will and the strength to take a stand.

Okay, here's more information on yesterday's breakup, there'll be rant of course, but there's also hope. And remember, this is only my view on things - to be honest, right now I don't give a f*cking damn about his side because as it is I deserve the luxury of ignoring it completely. For now.

Okay, folks, follow me.Collapse )

In every way. Yes, it's fanfiction, and I'm still very insecure about making it public. On the other hand I'm a little proud and also relieved because I was convinced I could never write something in English. But it came along quite smoothly, and since I've received a few very nice words about it I'll give it a go and step out of the anonymity of the kinkmeme and post it at least on my own journal.

Enjoy!

Only a matter of time, I suppose.Collapse )
