The Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect IP Act have been created in an effort to stop online piracy and protect copyright laws. Why is everyone in such a huff over something that is obviously a good thing? Because of how these two acts can be used against legitimate websites we love (like Tumblr) and how it could completely change the internet as we know it. Others have said it better then I can, so, if you are lost about this whole SOPA/PIPA thing check out some of the links below.
