Internet Censorship

A short explanation of the effects of the proposed SOPA & PIPA bills that have been tabled in the US.

The US and many other countries have been trying to pass internet restricting policies ostensibly to prevent pirating of movies - which of course all the switched on users will be able to circumvent.

Unfortunately for all of us,  one of the ripple of effects is that these bills play into the hands of governments in the future who may not be entirely pro-democratic.  They have far reaching implications beyond pirating movies.
