SOPA is a current bill before congress that would censor the internet, restrict freedom of speech and directly threat thousands of independent blogs like Trifecta Sports. The bill was meant to restrict piracy online, which I am all for, but the bill is so vague that it leaves the door open for regulation of many internet users/bloggers.
Many film and music companies as well as MLB, NFL, ESPN, Disney and many others support the bill because of the money they have lost to piracy. On the other side of the argument, Facebook, Twitter, Google, Wikipedia as well as thousands of other sites have openly opposed this bill. Wikipedia has even gone as far as to shut down their website for the day in protest of the bill. Google features a large black rectangle over their logo with a message “Tell Congress: Please Don’t Censor The Web!”
