Just think…this is BEFORE something like SOPA and PIPA have been passed, but our government and special interests feel that they need even MORE power over the internet. This clearly shows that we are guilty until proven innocent.
I have a strong feeling that SOPA and PIPA are not going away and won’t due to special interests putting pressure on OUR representatives. They may not be named SOPA and PIPA in the future, but we need to keep an eye out for these terrible pieces of legislation and call our representatives to vote any such legislation down. The RIAA and MPAA are already using gangster-like tactics against private individuals by abusing the legal system and legislation such as this only streamlines it.

Copyright and patent reform are necessary for the United States to be relevant in creating new products in addition to continuing to be innovative and competitive in the free market.
