Yep, that law is trying to get passed again; trying to make any unlawful use of copyrighted material a felony and what not.

Here's an article about it from earlier this month: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/07/unauthorized-streaming-felony_n_3720479.html

And here's a petition you can sign if you oppose SOPA: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/stop-sopa-2013/LMzMVrQF

Make what you will of it.

What some people don't realize is that this would basically destroy the internet.

If SOPA passed: Youtube? Dead. Any media site that streams video like Youtube? Also dead. Not just videos. Image sharing sites and file sharing sites, as well. If SOPA passed, the Internet would, essentially, die. And, we'd have a GIGANTIC prison system. Everyone would be sent to prison.

Edit: Why the Hell was OP's post reported to Mods? I'm confused. Did he do something wrong?
