SOPA is more than DNS blocking.

Once FR is targeted, the very act of donating to FR becomes a Federal crime with serious penalties.

Once FR is targeted, Visa, Mastercard, Paypal, etc will be legally prohibited from processing donations.

Once FR is targeted, Jim and John will be facing massive legal bills and potential Federal prison sentences.

SOPA was specifically designed to destroy all fair use doctrine, codified at 17 U.S.C. § 107, in the United States,

SOPA was specifically written by lobbyists to target FR’s landmark legal victory in LOS ANGELES TIMES v. FREE REPUBLIC

DeSOPA and other end-arounds of this bill will not keep the lights on on FR and other internet blogs/forums/websites.

I was speaking specifically to the discussion in the article. I understand that SOPA is astronomically more devious than just this.
