SOPA Piracy Bill Will Lead To Internet Censorship

Censorship has never been a part of the United States, but it looks like that might be coming to an end. SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) is a bill being reviewed right now that will allow Copywriters and Law Officials the right to cut power to websites and block search engines from sites suspected of Online Piracy.

Requiring ISP’s (Internet Service Providers) to a URL from the web is censorship. The movie and music industry disagree as they are losing huge sums of money to Online Piracy.

“Their business models are threatened by theft,” Schmidt said. “We don’t endorse it. Please don’t do it. If you’re doing it, stop. I hope that’s very clear.”

This remark followed a letter opposing the SOPA bill and it’s counter parts.

The Movie and music industry takes a difference stance “We are concerned that these measures pose a serious risk to our industry’s continued track record of innovation and job creation, as well as to our nation’s cybersecurity.”

What are your thoughts on this? Should the government block URLs and websites who are suspected of engaging in illegal activities?
