Anonymous Declares War on Sony (Again) for Supporting SOPA

It’s been almost a year since eActivist group Anonymous leveled a threat against Sony that was shortly followed by the take-down of the Playstation Network. Now that Sony has expressed its support of the Stop Online Piracy Act, Anonymous has once again targeted the industry giant, delivering a threat in its signature synthetic voice.

Your support of 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.

Playstation fans were outraged when the PSN went down, and although Anonymous denied culpability in the incident, the “whether some like it or not” threat implies a similarly unpopular act may take place.

Anonymous went on to mark four SOPA-supporting celebrities as targets: Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, and Taylor Swift — a strange addendum to the message.

Without condoning nor condemning Anonymous’ actions, I am curious to see what comes of this.

SOPA is nothing more than bought and paid for legislation.
It is bought and paid for by distributors and other middle-men using outdated and over-priced distribution methods.

I thought these guys were going after the Church of Scientology? Did they give up on that campaign?

You think I'm dumb enough to say my REAL name?

Cons:
-Yet ANOTHER PSN shut down

Pros:
-Such acts are for the freedoms of speech
-If SOPA passes (pray to god that it won’t…) the corrupt US congress will get royally ass-raped
-Anon is going to e-nuke Justin dude-looks-like-a-lady Bieber! Need I say more?
