SOPA: The End of the Internet as We Know it | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

Anytime Congress starts working to 'regulate' the Internet I get worried.  This bill takes a big bite out of the First Amendment.  Why is it that the Bill of Rights isn't more of an issue in this debate?  Could it be that congress is only listening to the big copyright combines?  "I'm shocked!" ~ Dennis

Last week, the House Judiciary Committee held a markup on H.R.3261, the Stop Online Piracy Act or “SOPA,” a bill to address the problems of online copyright and trademark infringement. The controversial nature of the legislation is reflected by the fact that Members offered more than 55 amendments to the legislation, and the markup could not be completed as scheduled. The Committee has announced that the markup will resume on December 21.
