I think it would be the start of terrible things. It would expose the US businesses to lawsuits from other countries. I can see why the internet economies don't want to have anything to do with it.
It is a bill congress is going to try to pass, but if other countries could bring lawsuits against U.S. business, then why would congess want to pass it?
If you hate SOPA, then vote for the candidate who openly speaks out against it: Ron Paul.
It is the first step full Internet censorship. They can't stand that we can say whatever we want to whomever.
All they have to do is find an illegal copyrighted material on a website or even on sites like Hubpages and they will be able to take it off line. Whose to
know what is legal illegally copyrighted text or photos or music, whatever? Believe I read they even do not need any proof just an accusation. So kiss the Internet good bye.
So, if this passes, they can do anything they want, they don't even have to prove it. What can the do next, ok don't answer that, it is scary.
You know here in England we tend to follow what America does, and if congress passes this, then I bet we will follow and it will happen here. It has to be stopped!!!
Have a revolution or something, were famous for them here in Europe why not follow our example??? Please!!!
In addition I think I read that there is also a provision that it would be illegal for any of us to create an alternative Internet. From this provision one can guess what this is all about - the preservation of the ruling class.
That is evil, do they really have that much power over people?
You know they can actually send you to jail for this "crime" for up to 5 years. The more I am reading about it, the worse it gets.
'Spose the 1%.
"That is evil, do they really have that much power over people?" The privately owned fed is illegal.
Privately owned radio is illegal. They do have that much power over people. They have all the power.
I'm suspicious of SOPA, but I don't know enough about it to form a firm opinion.

I just heard about these bills and read that they will send anyone to jail for a max of 5 years. This is if you access any content which is copyrighted more than 10 times in a 6 month period.

Do you prefer Internet censorship??It is logical to set restriction on the Internet usage? What do you think?

SOPA and PIPA are two proposed laws that will enable copyright holders to accuse websites which hosts pirated content. Wikipedia, in protest, will blackout English Wikipedia for 24 hours. Should Internet be free and open worldwide?

For those who neglect their emails:* Start *Stop SOPA and Protect IPContact your congressman and save HubPages!While we prefer to leave political discussions to Hubbers in the Politics and Social Issues forum, a rather pressing matter has inspired us to break from our typically apolitical stance....

So, what will happen next. Obama said he is against both bills. Congress had wanted to pass both of them. Obama killed SOPA at 3:30 this afternoon. What is going happen with IP?http://www.forbes.com/sites/johngaudios … gislation/
