The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA, H.R. 3261) is on the surface a bill that attempts to curb online piracy. Sadly, the proposed way it goes about doing this would devastate the online economy and the overall freedom of the web. It would particularly affect sites with heavy user generated content. Sites like PINKBIKE, Youtube, Reddit, Twitter, and others may cease to exist in their current form if this bill is passed.
