"Like online piracy, child pornography is a billion-dollar business operated online. It is also illegal. Thatís why law enforcement officials are authorized to block access to child-porn sites."
Yet after years of having absolute authority to shut it down, child pornography still exists online. But SOPA will completely eradicate copyright "stealing", you'll see.
Where is the SOCP (Stop Online Child Pornography) bill? Oh, that's right, no Hollywood lobbies backing that one.
Can someone please point me to the law the requires the recording and movie industries to release their products in a digital format? You would think if it was destroying their business, they would stop doing it and just go back to vinyl or 8mm. No, then people would just convert it and upload it and steal it that way. Damn, what ever will they do. Let's see...um...ah...TAKE OVER THE INTERNET! That's the ticket!
