Video: Excellent Explanation about why SOPA and PIPA bad

Those who don't understand why the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA) are very bad pieces of legislation need to see this video. Clay Shirky breaks it all down in very easy-to-understand terms. It is the entertainment and media industry lobbyists that are behind it and if they get their way, control of the internet is almost guaranteed to be wrested from the people.

Fortunately, the people won a victory this past week when both bills saw a significant reduction in support and were shelved. As Shirky explains here, though, it will not end there. It will come back.

Oh, none other than former Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd is the chairman of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). Ya think he's got some connections in Congress?
