    I think the whole point of the blackouts is to bring awareness to the everyday "non-geeks" who use the internet who may not be aware. So that is why the google's and wikipedia's are good choices for that. People who use this site are generally already aware of this.

    Now if Facebook would have blacked out today that would raise the awareness massivly. I mean epic motion set forth by people that only use facebook. I mentioned SOPA and PIPA on my facebook and had a ton of messages from people that have no clue what it means.

    It would be impossible to STOP online piracy. Even with this bill, a U.S. citizen can still rent a server from any european country, whether it be semi or fully dedicated, doesn't matter. Controlling that from a simple remote access software, you can reach these sites "banned" by the U.S., and simply FTP those files to your local computer. Since the only internet usage you will be using is the remote access software, and a FTP program, you never actually visit those sites from your computer in the U.S. There will always be a way around everything. I do believe when it is properly worked out, this will definitely make it more difficult to pirate everything. It is definitely a step in the right direction to attempt to put a "STOP" to the piracy, but there are many issues about it that still need to be worked out. The worst thing for them would be pushing this legislation forward and trying to ignore the issues. Doing that will cause the legislation to not pass which makes it that much harder to try and get it passed the next time.
