Yeah, they'll likely try to pass similar bullshit by wedging shit into future bills. I hope I'm just being cynical, but I dunno.

Am quite unfamiliar with the "copyright infringement" laws in the US, but if it's already a crime then why arrest people only after SOPA? did SOPA turned the copyrights infringement from a civil crime to a criminal one? I know that am probably missing/forgetting something really simple that will clarify my questionings but i can't put my hand on it.
I'm pretty sure the only reason they arrested those 7 guys was just to make an example of somebody. There's no way in hell anybody can catch all the pirates on the internet. Not even close. All the government can do is (and has done) is catch a few high profile people and put them on a show trail. They did the same shit to Napster years ago, and probably many others.

Re: Megaupload Shut down by FBI

The European Union, the US and 7 other countries signed it so far. There's also the TPP(Trans-Pacific Partnership) which is I quote:

Quote:
The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement is a trade agreement currently being negotiated by the United States and eight other countries. Like ACTA, the TPP is being negotiated in secret, and on a fast timetable. We don’t know what’s in the TPP IP chapter, and that’s what worries us. Entertainment industry executives who are members of the Industry Trade Advisory Committee will likely get to see the agreement drafts – again – but the rest of us will be kept in the dark unless we speak up now.
