#SOPA Wants Afternoon Notes and a Podcast

Ah, the Stop Online Piracy Act. The proposed bill is out to shut down online copyright infringement by restricting access to sites that host or facilitate the trading of pirated content — or basically the whole Internet. If passed, SOPA will directly affect everything you do on the Internet, from KSR to YouTube to Twitter to Spankwire. It’s all in jeopardy.

So, in honor of SOPA, here are your afternoon Notes and podcast with a little bit of copyrighted material mixed in. If they’re taking us to jail, I’m going out swinging.


— Did last night’s big win mark the beginning of Kentucky’s dominance? Sure, the Cats are 18-1, but last night’s game was the first time we’ve seen the Cats firing on all cylinders since they beat UNC. We’ve been anxiously waiting for the day this team lives up to their potential, and it might finally be here. I know it was just one game at home against a mediocre team, but if UK puts it together again against Alabama on Saturday, look out SEC. Keep rollin’, boys.

— According to Adam Zagoria, Shabazz Muhammad is seriously considering UNLV:

“I think Shabazz is really considering going [there] because he feels that they’re a great team and everyone else sees that, too,” the UNLV-bound Morant, a 6-foot-8 power forward, told Five Star in the above video. “And they’re ranked in the nation.

“At first he wasn’t thinking about going there because he thought they wouldn’t be that good and he wouldn’t be looked at by [NBA] scouts. So he was mostly considering Kentucky, but now UNLV is in the top three.”

UNLV is a program on the rise, especially with the recent addition of Khem Birch, but a player like Shabazz would be absolutely crazy to not go to Kentucky. He’s the picture-perfect player for Calipari’s NBA farm system in Lexington. I think he’ll be a Cat and the staff is confident that they’ll get him.

— Look at our boy Mark Krebs doing big things!

I see you workin’ in Hollywood, big fella!

— Congrats to our own Matt Jones for receiving a 2011 Rootie for Best Political Blogger. In the award presentation on their website, the Barefoot & Progressive blog called Matt the “King of All Kentucky Media” and said he will probably be governor one day. That’ll be the day I move to Ohio. A man can only take listening to Werewolves of London for so long.

— Remember Randall Cobb’s kick return? It was so awesome. It’s also property of the NFL.

— It’s a sad day for all you Indianapolis Colts fans, according to Rob Lowe (yeah, the actor), Peyton Manning will retire. Remember, that’s coming from Rob Low.

— It’s also a sad day for all you Toccoa Falls basketball fans out there. The Eagles lost to Western Carolina by 102 points last night. They were down 72-17 at halftime and lost 141-39 in the end. It’s only the fourth time a D-1 school has lost by triple-digits.

    “Peyton Manning will retire” … I’ve waited 24 years to hear those words.

    That is awesome that Matt got The Rootie. Barefoot & Progressive does a lot of great work, and I’ve been enjoying their “Rootie” series. Governor seems a little small-time for Matt. I see him ridding us of that filthy Cardinal fan Mitch McConnell in the Senate.

    Shabazz seems like the kid that has to be the main man, and he can’t share the spot light as we would at UK. Hope I’m wrong, and he makes the smart move & picks UK.

    I kinda hear what you and all the other ‘young’ people are saying about this.
    But I think it’s a great Idea and WAY over due.

    Yes! The NFL owns that footage…..NOT YOU..NOT KSR…what if you made something, spent tons of time and money on it and someone just took it and used it to make money of their own without cutting you in. Don’t say you wouldn’t be pissed and try to sue…Yes KSR makes money with Clips like that..I see a WHOLE lot of adds on this blog, which slow it down, I’m sure you and Matt put those up there out of Charity…right?!

    So due to the fact people not only come here to see your words but also cool clips that you DON’T own, I assume, You and KSR make money…that could be illegal…copy right violations….I would assume…:) I’m not an attorney.

    But try to see my point.

    Ideas are property by law if copyright applies and I think there is Implied copyrights…..

    6. You should really read up on SOPA, it’s more about censorship without reason or cause. One step closer to being “force-fed” what you “need” to eat/hear/see instead of what you want.

    6. I don’t think you quite understand. Even something as simple as posting a screenshot from a movie would be a violation. We aren’t lying when we say the internet as you know it would be dead if SOPA were to get passed. It would be a disaster of epic proportions.

    6. Are you implying that the NFL is losing money due to the fact we can watch this clip for free on Youtube while Youtube racks up money on advertising? What financial loss is that clip to the NFL?

    This whole SOPA drama is spearheaded by the RIAA and MPAA because they use outdated business models and are going to have to change or go out of business. Don’t be fooled, there are plenty of anti-piracy laws on the books, this is just an attempt for these groups to extend their reach and smack down anyone who might hurt their profits.

    No one who opposes SOPA is in favor of violating copyright. The problem with SOPA is that it puts undue burden on websites to make sure copyrighted material is not being hosted on their sites. As Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales said, that’s like making automakers responsible for all crimes committed in cars. Only the largest, most well-funded websites could hope to comply with the law. That means that innovation and economic growth will be choked off. It is a stupid bill designed to serve a very narrow group of entertainment companies. The argument IS NOT ABOUT COPYRIGHT, it is about enforcement responsibility.

    Champions don’t get blown out

    UNC’s mauling by Florida State also calls into question the preseason No. 1 team’s fitness to contend for a national title. History says that teams that lose by 30 points at any point in the season don’t cut down nets come April.

    With the help of a reader, Lexington (Ky.) Herald-Leader columnist John Clay did some research on the biggest margin of defeat for an eventual national champion. The results should cause concern on Franklin Street. The worst loss ever by a title winner came in the 1964-65 season, when Illinois (7) beat UCLA (8) by 27 in December. The Bruins went on to win their second consecutive title that spring.

    SOPA and PIPA aren’t just bad because the limiting of freedom of speech and censorship. Its an attempt at a hostile takeover by big money interests to limit competition on the internet. You can look this up too by the way. Large parts of the bill were actually written by the, for example. The bill allows certain websites to be blocked with vague legal language which means basically any site can be blocked. Godaddy and its domains, however, are exempt from this…how convenient. This is just the first step in creating an internet that’s based on pay for view or “packaged” sites not unlike the current cable tv system. Money that does not go to the websites but to service providers (i.e.) Insight.

    BTW, Rand Paul says he is against both PIPA and SOPA and has pledged to filibuster them.

    It is an honor, Shields Eyes. It is, along with KSR, one of the only homegrown Kentucky websites that offers smart insight about the world today. They are constant defenders of Kentucky, and they do it in a remarkably intelligent way. If you have a problem with sharp, funny, and clever commentary then what the hell are you doing on Kentucky Sports Radio?

    Seriously? I live 30 muntes from Toccoa, Georgia. Toccoa Falls is a very small, private, Christian college. It’s not even NAIA, man. Shoddy journalism strikes again.

    They just passed NDAA which allows the military to detain u without miranda Rights, without counsel, without charges against u, without a process to obtain witnesses, without trial, without due process, without habeas corpus. Time to move forward and censor the internet. I mean liberty and justice my arse!
