SOPA Bill--for it or against it? And why? [View all]

I keep thinking there is a lot more to it than chasing down pirates, and is just another tool in corporate warfare on the internet.

I've seen a lot in the years I've been online, and I think the USA government--or any government, for that matter--controlling any aspect of our online life is despicable, and comparable to the clampdown that countries like China have on online content.

The Internet was envisioned largely as an "information superhighway" as Al Gore called it, for multi-nationals to share information and correspondences. Abusing that power of freedom would be unconscionable, and that's what I fear the SOPA is all about.

Found this video and recommend to watch it. Interesting!
