Pretty much what Phyzin said, except that it may have some adverse affects on social networking sites, and MANY other related freedom of speech website. The bill isn't very clear on how and what they can and can't do in relation to certain content. For example, some content they may deem as potentially piracy related and jsut censor it - on facebook for example. It's a silly law, and it sounds useful but it'll make things worse, not better.

I believe the congressmen who demanded SOPA and PIPA are now against both acts.
They've also had their personal info released multiple times over the Christmas and New Years weeks, and have received multiple death threats since then. With the amount of awareness major websites like Google are raising, it's highly unlikely that it will pass.

As some of you guys may know the American Government is trying to get a bill passed to cencor anything on the internet that they deem as inappropriate. These include social networks, hosting sites, and personal pages like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. This is a bad thing they are doing because I find nothing wrong with any of those sites they deemed as inappropriate. They are making a big mistake that they will eventually regret if the bill gets passed. What do you guys think about it?
