Response to Eid Ma Clack Shaw (Reply #19)

20. Amen...

Just like how the right wing complains that it's not more gun laws we need but enforcement of the current laws, you show the same should apply in regards to SOPA/PIPA. If someone violates a copyright, it should be up to the holder to handle this matter...within the law...either through a C&D letter and if that doesn't work, then speak to an intellectual property lawyer on how to proceede.

Unfortunately there are a few bad apples out there who are profiting from the works of others and they should be prosecuted and their sites shut down, but its not the government's role to play policeman here. Listening to the statements of congresscritters on this matter shows how clueless they are on the internet in general and this issue in specific.

Thank you for your post!

Cheers!!
