SOPA - What is it

My daughter asked me last night why are so many sites going dark? I then explained it was due to SOPA, and she asked me what SOPA was.

Basically its being backed by the Movie Studios as a way to protect their existing business. And the entertainment business has a history of fighting innovation and has done an A+ job of lobbying congress to help them out. An example of past hyperbole was video recorders are going to kill the movie industry. SOPA would make a lot of activity illegal in the US and allow the easy take downs of sites, possible for even only sharing links there goes twitter  if it passes).

The blog post, why the Movie Industry can't innovate is a must read!
