Basiacally internet censorship. It would give the govt rights to shut down a website that was guilty of internet piracy. The music and the film industry has been getting ripped off for years by users uploading material and making available. It would mean websites would have to police there content closely, even what users put up, or risk being shut down. Bad news for places like youtube.

The biggest problem is that the govenment dont have to have proof of there claim.<br />
Which leave the powers in the SOPA bill open to abuse.<br />
<br />
And can americans get this idea....These laws will be used against YOU.<br />
<br />
If for example you post a like here on e.p that leads to "copyright infringment materal"<br />
The U.S, govenment can close E.P. with out any warning or recours open to the site owners.<br />
AND will allow them to read your e-mail for "links to infringed materal"<br />
<br />
It would also give them the power to acces e-mail thats in transit on U.S servers even thoough the sender and recipiant are not in the U.S.<br />
<br />
(by the way....I`m not in the U.S. either.)
