SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act)

on Thu May 24, 2018 9:28 pm
Responding to entertainment industry complaints about what was seen as widespread copyright infringement by Internet users, Lamar Smith (R-TX) introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives a bill that threatened to shut down access to Web pages that contained any copyrighted information without the permission of the copyright holder. For example, if your private Web page was streaming the complete Iron Man 2 movie, access to your page would be blocked until you either removed the movie or got the permission of Marvel Entertainment (or the current copyright holder) to show the film for free.

Sounds fair, right?

What were the issues surrounding SOPA? What is the main concern? How did Wikipedia become involved?
