SOPA shouldn't happen. The current DMCA protocols are clearly enough. Piracy will never completely go away, but it doesn't effect sales to the point of collapsing a company unless they really ****ed up (looking at you Sega).

Most indie game developers dont care about the money. They want to get their work out there. The more people to play/see it, the better.
The larger corporations can deal with piracy on their own terms. Look at EA and Microsoft.
Good analysis. In a few ways this really does circumvent (some would say detonate) the DMCA notice process. Scary stuff.

Ya know if the government on the top level cared to listen to this stuff before they started to ramrod this into congress there would be a lot less strife. The idea is sound the implimentation is just horrible wrong, they might as well outlaw neighbours cause they could overhear your songs/videos and there for be pirates. Yarrr
