I think that the problem is the generic language of the bill.  This always happens when people try to paint censorship with a broad "i know it when I see it" brush.

It's also absolutely forcing middlemen to do outrageous amounts of work for the content rights holders.  Imagine, instead of fining a street vendor for selling bootlegs, you have the entire street shut down until things can be resolved.
100 characters. Nah. Try 28.

He has been fighting against the bill, go into the video a bit and shows that there has been progress.
The WHITEHOUSE itself has said that they will not support the legislation so it would seem that it won't go any further or at least halted for a bit. Sorry my post is all over the place just watch the video lol.

I decided to write a 8-10 page research paper on SOPA for my English COMP2, don't know if I can bitch about downloading illegal stuff for 10 pages but I will.  I mean I've written about my butthole in this class before I'm sure I can get away for with 10 pages of bullshit.

Except SOPA isn't 10 pages of bullshit and has very little to do with illegal downloads. You should probably do some research on this because you sound pretty stupid talking about it.

NO OFFENSE

I can almost guarantee that won't pass.  If SOPA was bad enough that they pulled it from a vote, then if they don't do the same to PIPA it will lack the support to pass.  And it has to pass both houses so if the house of reps doesn't want SOPA even if the senate wants PIPA the house of reps won't pass it.

The thing with PIPA is that it's SOPA except not nearly as bad. It's still bad, but it's not the same level of absurdity as SOPA. It's the lesser of two evils, the way myself and many others see this situation is that SOPA was introduced simply to make PIPA look better in comparison, giving a bit of wiggle room for it. We need to focus our attention on PIPA until the house squashes it as well. There's no reason to let it gain any momentum.

Hey America, just kidding. SOPA isn't going anywhere.
