I'ld like to register my wholehearted support for SOPA. Unlike PIPA, it offers search engines a bone in requiring judicial approval for actions against them. This is only right since they all contribute significant amounts to political campaigns and have significant PACs. Any truly American bill will recognize the power of significant outlays of cash. In this respect PIPA is sadly shortsighted.
I am also impressed by the fact that cloud providers will be taken to task for what their users do. Too long have we allowed American compute providers to ignore what their users are doing. This will help us rid them of all their possibly scabby users, e.g., social startups, publishers, etc. Those scoundrels will now go oversees where they belong.
Finally, working for a company that offers DNS resolution to the world, I'm joyed by the government's help in reducing the sheer number of domains we have to proxy resolution for. Not since the Great Firewall of China have we had such help. In one swell foop, the GFW saved us all the cycles and bandwidth we needed to serve youtube.com
to 1.3 billion people. Now the US government will be able to do the same and in spades. Perhaps, they too will want to directly control our serving in order to avoid 'misunderstandings' as to their intent.
