THIS IS VERY URGENT AND NOT A JOKE! ALSO DON'T GOOF OFF!!!!

I really mean it! What would 당신 be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would 당신 be able to do if 글쓰기 fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would 당신 do if it's illegal to do a cover of your 가장 좋아하는 song on YouTube? What would 당신 do if downloading things from the internet (music, movies, TV episodes, etc) became illegal? What would 당신 do if SOPA/TPP wins the war and takes away internet freedom? Net Neutrality is already dead so far, we can't risk the freedom of internet from getting killed 의해 SOPA/TPP!


SOPA may have been stopped, but large companies with many copyrights are trying to re-institute portions of it under other names and policies. This attempt to protected speech in the name of copyright is unacceptable, and must be resisted.

The two terms are not interchangeable. This soapbox is intended to help 당신 learn to tell the difference if 당신 can't already.

The primary difference is in architecture. Castles were built as forts; they have narrow windows, drawbridges, murder holes, etc. Dover 성 is an excellent example. Palaces were built as places of residence so they tend to be much 더 많이 sprawling and lacking in drawbridges and barbicans.

Another difference is in location. Palaces were not built in hostile territory since they were intended to be residences whereas castles were used as outposts from which a lord could exercise control of the surrounding territory.

Castles and palaces could either be built in a city- like the one in Canterbury- 또는 in 더 많이 remote locations. What person doesn't like to have a place (or several) to retreat to when they need a break from things?

Hopefully this rather short soapbox has been useful!
