Title of your paper: PIPA & SOPA

Introduction In this paper, the topics to be discussed are what is PIPA and SOPA, prior related acts or laws, impacts on the first and fourth amendment, impacts on e-commence, supporters, and oppositions. This topic may seem old, but it could always come back later. Back in 2011 and 2012, there was a big fight between Congress and the Internet sites. This fight was over PIPA and SOPA which people associated it with censoring the Internet. However, it was much more than just censoring the Internet. It violated not one, but two amendments that are granted to every U.S. citizen. It also had the potential to hurt e-commence. As Wikipedia said on one of it’s blackout pages in 2012 “Imagine a world without free knowledge” and that is exactly what these sites were trying to protect. Yes, they may have won for now, but there is always a chance these acts could show up again.
What is PIPA? PIPA is short for PROTECT IP Act or Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act. This bill was introduced to the Senate on May 12, 2011 (U.S. Senate, 2011). This act would “enhance enforcement against rogue websites operated and registered overseas” (U.S. Senate, 2011). Once the Attorney General gets a court order for the “rogue” site, the notice can be served to financial transaction providers (such as PayPal) to stop processing payments immediately, advertising networks to stop promoting the site or advertising on the “rogue site”, Internet providers to stop allowing access to that specific domain, and search engines (such as Google) to stop showing the “rogue” site in their results (Schmitz,…...

Literature Analysis of Hamlet

...Literature Analysis of Hamlet U5A1 Letitia Stevens Introduction to the Humanities (HUM1000) Unit 5 Literature Analysis of Hamlet Capella University May 2016 Introduction During the last years of Queen Elizabeth, “The Tragedy of Hamlet” was written by William Shakespeare. The father of Hamlet appeared outside of the Elsinore Castle on what seemed to a very cold night for the season that they were in. His appearance was referred to as of a warning that was leading to the killing in ancient Rome of Caesar. The presence provided Horatio and his company a suggestion that something threatening or evil had previously taken place and the would have been an offset to nature in Denmark. There was a transfer of power post the death of the king that led some to believe that the future of Denmark was in trouble. It is proven by the later appearance of the ghost that there would be a Denmark tragedy. What is a soliloquy? A Soliloquy defined is the disregard of the people around while speaking to themselves about in-depth thoughts, usually in a play or drama. (Merriam-Webster Dictionary, n.d). In dramas and play, when this is used, the people or characters are not mindful of things that person speaking is speaking about. When realism was introduced in the late 1800’s, soliloquies was not as prevalent. In the play, “Hamlet” soliloquies were used throughout to disclose his most in depth feelings to the viewers. William Shakespeare uses soliloquies in not only......
