SOPA — the Stop Online Piracy Act — has been presented in the House of Representatives as a way to protect movie studios, record labels and others whose music and films are taken and copied online. There was a hearing on it today. Its Senate counterpart is called the Protect IP Act.

But others are calling them flawed bills that would lead to Internet censorship.
So basically they want to control the entire Internet (which only a small percentage has anything to do with music and movies) and turn it upside down for their needs. Collectively shitting on the free world, much?

Quick, let's build our own Internet!
