    Video: Anonymous Send Message to Sony Regarding SOPA Bill

    Despite some members being arrested a few months back, Internet hacking group Anonymous have now sent Sony a message in the form of a video (below) regarding the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) bill.

    This comes just a week after reports of a SOPA-style court order for India's ISPs to block some of the world's largest file-sharing sites including BitTorrent, Megaupload and more.

    Shortly following, GoDaddy announced their support for SOPA resulting in thousands of domain owners prompting to leave the registrar, including giant networks such as Wikipedia and Cheezeburger which consists of over 1000 domains alone.

    To deal with the large volume of domain transfers, GoDaddy began blocking (and in some cases delaying) them, which is against the ICANN rules.

    Finally, GoDaddy realized that SOPA is far too broad and not beneficial to tech-savvy sites due to the possibility of rampant abuse by corporations, and have redacted their stance on supporting SOPA even going as far as calling customers to let them know of the change to prevent further losses.

    According to PlayStationLifeStyle.net, PSN and consumers will not be harmed by Anonymous #OpSony as they will be targeting executives only.

    Below is what Anonymous states to Sony regarding their support for SOPA, to quote:

    Hello, SONY.
    We are Anonymous.

    It has come to the attention of the Anonymous activist community that you have chosen to stand by the Stop Online Piracy Act. This act will halt online businesses and restrict access to many sites for many users. Supporting SOPA is like trying to throw an entire company from off a bridge.

    Your support to the act is a signed death warrant to SONY Company and Associates. Therefore, yet again, we have decided to destroy your network. We will dismantle your phantom from the Internet. Prepare to be extinguished. Justice will be swift, and it will be for the people, whether some like it or not. Sony, you have been warned.

    To those doubting our powers. We've infiltrated the servers of Bank of America, The United States Department of Defense, The United Nations, and Lockheed Martin. In one day.

    For their approval to SOPA, we have also declared that our fury be brought upon the following persons. Justin Bieber. Lady Gaga. Kim Kardashian. and Taylor Swift.

    Operation Blackout, engaged.
    Operation Mayhem, engaged.
    Operation LulzXmas, engaged.

    We are Anonymous.
    We are Legion.
    We do not forgive.
    We do not forget.
    Supporters of SOPA, you should've expected us.

    Update: Nintendo, Electronic Arts and Sony Electronics have all pulled their support for the SOPA bill that could encourage censorship online... a step in the right direction indeed!

    Justin Bieber approves of SOPA? Why does he care, it's not like anyone downloads his songs anyways. Same applies to Kim Kardashian, it's not like someone is going to illegally download her wedding since it would take longer to download it than her marriage even lasted.

    Sony must understand that once they stop being greedy people will stop pirating games.

    Simply put - not advocating going around to stop SOPA illegally, however use your wallet - it speaks. Call your congressmen and senators, jam their phones.

    I do support the possibly upcoming blackout days, would be something if youtube or facebook goes dark for a day, it would really get people thinking about SOPA, and why it must be stopped!

    I don't like how they're targeting just Sony. Other companies are supporting it too, ya know. I wouldn't mind seeing them try to hit Microsoft, Sony AND Nintendo at the same time.

    Same here in europe austria

    I don't think that they only targeting sony. If the time hase come they will let go down all others too. Not only sony. But maybe it has something to do with the vita and all that stuff that is spread over the net the last days. Meaning the spying thingy and that they force you to update otherwise you cant use the system anymore.

    They steal our human rights and spit on it. We are not North Korea. We are not China. We are not the Irak.

    We are Anonymous.
    We are Legion.

    We do not forget.
    You should've expected us.

    Look at that stupid crackhead and what he talking about.

    Also the part with geohot. We now know that geo get condemned and never can touch a sony device again.

    He talks about using his brain and the legal system and dont recognize that the big and mightys just use the legal system on a non legal way to control us.
