Well you've got a list of those who support SOPA:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_le ... PA_or_PIPA
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_or ... Piracy_Act

You can make sure they will regret ever supporting it - and right now I am not even talking about illegal stuff - so seriously what's the problem?

Well, yeah, we probably already have. Since, as I understand it, even a simple link to the pirate bay could be illegal in this case.
No, spudfiles will not be affected by sopa. If it passes, the hits will be dealt to major sites first, which will be no doubt noticed by everyone. By the time it gets down to the level spudfiles is on, you can bet the courts will be overwhelmed. It's just not possible to enforce a law to that extent short of basically shutting down all major ISPs.

Interestingly enough, sopa seems to have a nice self-destruct function built in. Do you own copyrights to text, photos or videos on the web? Chances are the answer is yes, and someone else is currently violating them under sopa legislation.
So, hypothetically, what would happen to the US court system if a few billion people suddenly showed up banging on the door screaming copyright infringement? If they want frivolous, I'm sure we can show them frivolous.

Not only could this create a china-like banhammer in the US, it could also give large corprations the ability to smash smaller ones and/or deal millions of dollars of damage to others by whistleblowing. Even if you look at the bill google is rocommending, there is still that possibility. It is utter madness. I'm not one for anarchy, but I sure think that anarchy is a better choice in this case.

Old news is old.

I was positively, 100% certain somebody would post a thread like this today because of Google's homepage.

It's a good thing though. :D

I wonder if the same applies to all the free pr0n sites out there...
