Anything Hollywood is for, we all should be against.
"We will do this: we will hang together, we will keep our organization, our arms, our discipline, our hatred of oppression, until one universal shout goes up from an admiring age that this Missouri Cavalry Division preferred exile to submission, death to dishonor".

The only Confederate General who refused to surrender himself or his 1,000+ "Iron Brigade".

Here's a bit of law to ponder on. First, Copyrights:
It can be argued that Congress has exceeded its authority, the life of an author +70 years is hardly a limited time. The same can be said of the life of "Works Made For Hire."
But that is a layman's argument and hardly a legal argument.
Regardless, contrast those IP (Intellectual Property) rights with patent rights (another form of IP):
In order to quash SOPA and PIPA, it must come from a genuine ground swell movement. In the face of such a large lobby group however, it may not be possible to derail.
I urge everyone to contact their federal representatives by phone, mail and email. The more the better.
