"SOPA would also empower Copyright holders to obtain a court order against websites accused of infringing on copyright claims without first notifying the suspected site of their intent."

What are the legal requirements to obtain a court order? What legal information must be provided to a court?

You just move the website outside of the USA and you can use the court order as a wipe.

I'm not saying that it should be legal to put a 10,000 song collection online like that, but the RIAA has to accept the fact that their old business model is no longer working.
get with the times, come up with a reasonable alternative to illegal downloads and the problem will go away.
Ah yes, and stop telling us that a crappy MP3 is as good as the CD original, not to mention the 96KHz Multi-channel Studio master !

Despite an outcry from citizens and prominent tech industry experts - including a scathing open letter released today by 83 Internet Engineers and inventors - the bill inexplicably retains solid support in the House of Representatives.
Call that "democracy", a$$es?! People want one thing, government ignores the demand and does something else...

Hrmm If this bill passes I fore see a boom in public/private DNS's that are based outside of the US or Possibly some sort of crazy HOST file modifications.

Moving the website out of the US would not matter. They don't seize the website, but the DNS. They redirect the DNS to another website. So all websites are affected, including foreign websites. That is, they're affected for residents of the USA.

We need to stand up, are rights here in the U.S are being taken from us each passing day, what we see on TV of uprising, thats exactly what we need to do. Its not that we have dictators, its the fact or system of democracy is broken, and the old fools in office are passing the dumbest things ever. Its time we revolted and went against our own government before they strip us of everything. Just my opinion but i am getting tired of this shit.

tell a judge infringement, website leaves the internet...

the problem was that there was no due process, it was all one sided with no defense at all... fair use is really the only way sites like youtube got popular.

And Youtube is now the most brainwashing thing that the internet has to offer. It's actually worst than television.

SOPA = prior restraint on free speech. No matter how they craft this it will be held unconstitutional.

They deal with s### like this, but ignore the economy, unemployment and everything else and think they should get re-elected. I think not.

Majority of the idiots in the US, don't have even the slightest clue what's going on in the world. The media won't report the facts on shit like this. If the media were to report EVERYTHING that goes on in DC....the government would get overthrown....

This is a new economic stimulus bill. They're going to use lawyers and judges to stimulate the economy.

Not much, according to some people who have read this bill. Basically an accusation would be enough to have any site taken down, which goes totally against the Fourth Amendment in America and stomps on numerous international agreements the U.S. signed in the past.
