@Tirlapur, I agree with you, in fact the websites blacking out their content has caused the Senators to re-evaluate the purpose. The current bill that is proposed is basically dead, and it's back to the drawing board.

I understand that the movie and music industry are fighting because they are losing money, but the way the law was written gives many loopholes that could cause censorship. The main purpose of these bills was to block overseas sites that are allowing pirated content.

Does anyone else find the idea of Wikipedia censoring its own site ironic?

@Barbara, I dont think the idea of wikipedia censoring its own site ironic. Infact I would say wikipedia was successful in this campaign because half-a-dozen of the 40 original co-sponsors of what is known as the PIPA bill withdrew their support Wednesday amid a one-day protest blackout by Wikipedia and other Web giants.

Barbara, I would like to know whether this new SOPA affect the contents and articles published in EBN and similar online communities. In most of the board messages, articles and blogs, contributors are providing external links and it's also to be having copy rights as per the SOPA, am I right. Are you foreseen any change in our way of presenting the articles?

SOPA = ΣΩΠΑ (In greek means to be silent)

hmmm, If we want to predict the future about the SOPA law, we can see what is going on with the patent war. The music companies they don't try to understand that, in reality, they don't loose any money because the people that they can afford to pay for music, they will do it.

With laws like SOPA, you just throw out some people and make it more expensive for the others.
