I am pretty young ad naive, so might I ask, what does piracy mean?
Internet piracy The theft and reuse of entities found on the Internet. These include VIDEO CLIPS, GRAPHIC IMAGES, and text. It is also the term that is used to describe the wholesale theft of WEB SITES where an illicit organization copies an existing site and places a new HOME PAGE for the site as part of a criminal enterprise. In general the unauthorized use of Internet media is as much a crime as the unauthorized use of any other media. See INTERNET COPYRIGHT.
Ok, censorship issues and internet sharing aside, has anyone actually looked at the mess they call a bill? It basically gives the Justice department a do-what-ever-the-hell-you-want card. I can see how claiming its a violation of the first amendment could be fought, or against those who have weak arguments to begin with, completely dismissed. BUT there is no way in hell anyone can challenge that the bill is a direct violation of the fifth and sixth amendments. It gives the justice department the right to basically kill a website on suspicion with no evidence, no trial, or any legal preceding what so ever. SOPA is just a bunch of pissed off entertainers and power hungry legal aids foaming at the mouth because the only made 4.4 billion last quater instead of 4.5 billion :/
