Editorial: About SOPA…..

 

Every couple of years there is a new anti-piracy bill and a new bill to protect “kids from porn” proposed. These bills are deliberately made to be over reaching and over broad.

This is done so certain members can say “see I voted to protect your kids from X” or they can say to wealthy and powerful companies that have intellectual property “See I voted for a law to protect your interests, intellectual property and your money” – In the case of the later it usually happens at times such as now when politicians are fund raising for the elections coming this November.

The bills are so broad and over reaching that they are not intended to become law and on the off chance that they do they are written in such a way that the courts will strike them down, thus setting the stage to use the issue again to shill for votes and fund raising dollars.

This bill was never intended to become law.
