SOPA is he latest attempt at stopping online piracy which for the most part is a good thing. The problem is that the latest series of bills also affects our liberty. Protecting against copyright infringement and illegal content on websites. These bills are supposedly targeted at websites that allow indiscriminant piracy on a huge scale. The problem as usual is in the details. It's one thing to defend against online piracy and illegal content. It's another to curtail, punish and or remove content from the interent without de process. The Interent is all about freedom of speech, just as America used to be. Legislation like this taints the principals that America was founded on. The latest trends in legislation seem to be tilted more towards censorship, restriction and blackisting, instead of freedom and liberty.
