I actually don't opposed this bill because it protects the copyrights and intellectual property rights of people like myself. Theft of these rights for years is what has prompted the creation of this bill since those that should have been enforcing these rights haven't taken the correct action. So the lobbying money has been turned to congress. And here we are.

The problem is that the bill is a really harsh reaction to the theft of years past and puts steep penalties in place that are sometimes out-of-line with the offense. I don't see this bill passing in its current form, but a milder more fair form would be important for content creators like me.

I have a current infringement issue with a local magazine. I'd rather be creating content than having to fight to protect it.
