    I forgot to mention... this would also have consequences on U.S. hegemony over the internet. If domains are censored in the U.S. then servers will go abroad in droves to escape the tyranny, and our country will no longer have its internet heritage. We created it and it was created to be free. If we turn our backs on that then other countries will pick up the torch; or, if it turns bad, it will incite other countries to begin their own censorship.

    After Wikileaks, the U.S. government will do anything to stop the truth from getting out. I don't think this bill is just about piracy, it's about broader control over how people think and exchange information.

    This bill is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen, and my views on it have pretty much been summed up my the others. What really grinds ny greas the most though is that this will not only the effect the US, but the whole world. This bill, if pass by the Government of the United States will affect me and how I go about downloading things of the Internet, and I live in Canada. This is not just bull****, but stupidity of the US over extending its pwoers to where it should not be, again.

    This is bill is anti-business. It's being sponsored by business interests who don't understand how an economy in the Information Age is working. Rather than adapt their business models to the Internet Revolution they're trying to restrain the internet so their past business model can work.

    Which it won't.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I know they are hanging onto their old business model like its the apocalypse. Why can;t they just let go and create a new one?

    these companies need to listen to their cutsomers more.

    Because baby boomers are still in control of the board of directors of these businesses and they can't admit they don't understand the evolution of the internet economy because it will mean they can't command the inflated executive salaries they contracted for now.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    It's amazing the strawmen people will come up with so they can continue stealing other peoples property because they somehow feel they are entitled to it even though they refuse to pay for it.

    It's amazing how the blind refuse to open their eyes when faced with facts, and will instead keep spouting the same old propaganda lines in order to justify expansion of government power.

    Some libertarian you are.
