This isn't about piracy. It's about freedom, censorship, and giving the Government carte blanche' to regulate the Internet without oversight or any due process. Piracy is already against the law, just fyi. Nobody is rationalizing against that. SOPA's enforcement of these laws was like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut, and that's the problem. Also SOPA wouldn't actually stop piracy at all. It simply would NOT work.

Oh and in Reclaimer fashion, I almost're an idiot!

You can never have a perfect system - a system where copyright is never infringed, while simultaneously fair use is always allowed. There's always a gray area. A system which strongly enforces copyright will result in certain legal fair use being disallowed. A system which strongly enforces fair use will result in weak enforcement of copyright.

You have to accept that perfect enforcement in either direction is impossible. The key is finding a good balance between the two. When you claim that it's completely about infringement and has nothing to do with losing freedoms, you're taking an entirely one-sided and thus unbalanced view of the issue.

I think the "reality" here is, that you have no fucking CLUE what you're talking about. You haven't read a single thing about SOPA or any of the millions of legal experts pointing out how it runs foul of the Constitution and the checks and balanced put in our Government. You're simply talking about of your ass, sorry to say.
