SOPA gets its initial push from copyright law (although anti-piracy laws already exist to protect intellectual property) and will end up suppressing the free exchange of information and ideas and give the government enormous power.
Yeah, SOPA is getting pushed in a very big way by the copyright industry, because they'd like to see the costs of copyright enforcement socialized through the Federal Govt. This way, taxpayers are footing the bill to keep propping up their failed business models that haven't adequately adapted to the realities of the information age.
