I'm curious as to what repercussions this has for people accessing sites stateside (remember the .com TLD counts as being hosted within the US regardless of physical location of the website servers etc.) from beyond the US.
Does this mean I am recorded every time I (as a citizen in a foreign country) access a website within US cyberspace regardless (legally not IMO, however I wouldn't be surprised if I was being recorded as I type this post)?
Killing our future no, however it would hinder it by the loss of another variety of tree (FWIW; I'm not a 'tree hugger'/environmentalist/Climate Change believer or whatever term applies to such thinking).
2mm might not seem like much at face value, but multiply that by the amount of wood ordered for the production of guitars and that 2mm can add up to quite a huge difference in the long term.
Also; 24mm (since I don't know how thick a plank is before cutting into thinner pieces pre guitar manufacture) would go into 4 guitars at 6mm (6 x 4 = 24) instead of 3 at 8mm (3 x 8 = 24), which makes little economic sense since a thinner guitar would wear down quicker (manufactured obsolescence, the reason things don't last so long these days) and less units available for sale meaning lower stock turnover (I'd rather more units from less material, simplistically [presuming all other manufacturing costs being equal] this would means a higher profit out that same amount of material).
"So their would be no public outcry over the censorship because only a few would have even noticed it happen."
Not only for censoring 'sensitive information but who knows what next innovative thing will come along that SOPA would be used to stall or even kill off (and in turn, to the desires of the corpocracy, potentially have a clone twisted to suit their agenda).
