    Dealing with websites that primarily exist to profit from others creations isn't censorship (which is SOPA's aim).

    If a real world business openly traded in stolen goods on the high street, you'd want it shut down. Even moreso if some of the goods they sold for profit were yours. You'd be effing livid if it were continuously ignored or giant loopholes allowed them to continue while you lost money.

    Piracy of digital goods is no different, regardless of the weak arguments of pirates.

    "The shit compensation for the artist" is the well used excuse for getting something for free.

    Many bands have put out "donate if you like" releases and more often than not, the donations were pitiful.

    When it becomes difficult to find pirated material and sales increase, I'll consider SOPA a success.

    I used to earn 3x what I do now, before incentive rewarding cyberlockers stole most of the business (who themselves are a giant scam)

    The people I paid to work for me, the taxes I used to pay.....gone - all going to another country.
