Who Is Supporting SOPA?

There are already laws that govern stolen, copyrighted material. The authorities need only find the culprit,  bring him/her to the relevant court and carry burden of proof. The trouble with SOPA is that it does what it does without anyone being found guilty in a court of law. Also, it tries to apply U.S. law to entities not under its jurisdiction. If someone in Peru, Bangladesh or wherever is stealing copyrighted material, then go to Peru, Bangladesh or wherever and fight the legal battle there. SOPA is all about control and being pushed by control freaks.

It's amazing that the only thing congress seems to be able to accomplish these days is to screw the American public. In all seriousness Citizens United has created a corporate congress whose only goal is to serve their sugar daddies.

The following representatives have supported this piece of ...... legislation. Let's fire them!
