  •  SOPA and PIPA do not stop piracy (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Already the big piracy operations are linked to the crackers who crack legitimate servers and store their pirated goods on websites who don't even know it is happening.

    So the people who will be hurt are innocent.

    The bad guys just crack a new server and move on.

    Anyone who knows ANYTHING about serious big money piracy knows that these bills won't TOUCH it.

    However, if you have a blog and quote something off CNN (a sponsor of this bill) YOUR website (or wordpress.com if you put your blog on them) can be SHUT DOWN without trial, without you being able to mount a defense.

    Once IP shutdown measures are put in place, everything to censor the internet (as Cuba does now) is ready to go into action.

    Expect OccupyWallSt etc to be blocked next.
