SOPA is an evil, corporate-worshipping bill that was brought into this world by conservatives Lamar Smith and Chris Dodd. Fortunately, the bill hasn't been approved but a new bill could appear with perhaps similar problems. The bill is designed to stop copyright "infringers" who typically use peer-to-peer networks such as BitTorrent, a protocol commonly used by pirates. The bill if passed will allow blacklists of pirate sites and people to be sentenced to 5 years in prison for sharing files that are copyrighted.
