    #OPEN may be the best alternative to SOPA and PIPA, but it does have flaws. I'll get more into that with the OPEN criticisms diary.

    Also, you bring up a very valid point that there are small-time artists who really could use copyright protection so that they could earn a living. Hopefully, we will find a balanced solution that would place governmental protection of the lesser-known artists as well as the well known artists.

    On that note, I should mention that I stopped pirating digital material years ago. I'm young, so my friends find me strange for doing that. I'd strongly suggest that if anyone wants to protest SOPA or PIPA, they should consider buying more material from independent artists who could really use the money.
