Even if this bill passed, the pirates simply move offshore along with most of the internet. The "SOPA will destroy the internet" is actually inaccurate. SOPA will destroy the AMERICAN internet as we know it
Because the internet, by design, cannot ever be properly enforced you have to ask the question, what is SOPA really trying to do?
If we give them the benefit of the doubt though, that it's to stop piracy, it won't actually be able to do so
My personal take on it, is old people trying to police something way over their heads. It will not effect me, okay so youtube dies, big deal, a new overseas company will take its place, all SOPA does is hurt the USA and to be cold.... not my problem
Digital copyright makes me laugh, you can never completely stop people from copying digital media, there will always be a percentage that will, they just need to get over it and market in ways that people actually want to buy the original
