Discuss.

I don't have much to say about it other than what is most likely already obvious to any American who finds no benefit in corporate interest involving itself in our laws.

I would like to comment on this issue, but with Wikipedia down I now have no ability to speak with authority on any topic.

Robin Williams calls it a day :(

On the same note, how am I supposed to make Mordecai"Three Finger" Brown jokes about Robin Williams if nobody can look him up? I feel like Dennis Miller, pre-internet days.

Most likely scenario:
*SOPA is all anyone talks about for the next week
*Executive branch steps in at the last second and "saves" us from it
*Meanwhile something way worse gets quietly snuck by us.

Yea I thought the same thing. They won't censor anything, they'll just started wire-tapping all of our IPs.

Also, lol @ google

Cool slant, bro. Noticed a line that said the administration might use it's veto power..........oh you mean like they did with the NDAA?

I actually worked with an advocacy group that had this legislation as one of its main issues. Soooo:

SOPA is the grandchild in a lineage of legislation that goes back to the fall of 2010 with the introduction of the COICA (Combating Online Infringements and Counterfits Act) bill, then continuing once that was defeated with the PROTECT IP (Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property) bill last spring. PROTECT IP (now also referred to as PIPA) was pretty much tabled in July of 2011, but it wasn't ever fully killed. SOPA was introduced this fall and pretty much has the same language as PIPA but it tightens up a lot of the definitions and focuses more on the "foriegn" site aspect.

All of these bills are being primarily supported by groups like the MPAA, RIAA and other "big content" holders. They've engaged in extremely dishonest marketing tactics to try and push these bills and others like them. They've mostly focused on how piracy is killing people, but then they took this hilarious "counterfeit pills killed my friend!" direction.
