A new bill in the United States congress (the Stop Online Piracy Act) could allow private media companies to shut down web sites with no due process. Every podcast done about Star Wars Minis, even these forums, could be shut down.

Worse, you likely have not heard of it because the media companies are not covering this new bill--they want it to pass quickly and quietly.

Please, take a moment to watch this video and learn about the new bill: http://fightforthefuture.org/pipa

My friend Arnie, from Star Wars Action News, wrote a full response to this bill, and the potential impact it could have on podcasting, here: Venganza Media Gazette. Granted, his article relates to his podcasts in general, but they hold equally true to ANY podcast. These forums themselves could be at risk.
