I do believe that Jamie captured the best paragraph in the entire article.
A riff on the whole Encyclopedia Britannica decision to stop printing the books. What if being the expert authority just isn't good enough any more? At least not for the questions that really matter...

Last night Max had questions about SOPA so we had a, "What does it mean to make an educated decision about politics" discussion. I am glad to know that although he's only 12, he took the time to read, listen and understand before deciding on his own. I'd be proud of him regardless, but I'm happy that he came to the same conclusion as us. There is an intent to do something right and desperately needed with this legislation. Piracy, especially international piracy is a serious problem. Some of the ideas in the legislation are even good ones. However, it takes the idea beyond reason. There is no notification, there is no clear differential in intent and it is seriously lacking in exclusions based on practices for US based companies with solid removal systems/practices designed to protect intellectual property such as those on Facebook, Google+ and YouTube. Keep in mind, this is my personal opinion after reading into the proposal language. Also, know that I am against this proposal while being someone who stands by my opinion that when it was in the business of piracy, shutting down Napster back in the day was the correct action to protect musical IP. Please consider signing the petition, SOPA is out of control.
