Personally, I understand the point of the legislation. But, I really am not happy about getting a government agency unbound power to shutdown a website. Because of that power-grab, I am firmly against this legislation even though I am just as much against media piracy. (I grew up with Napster, Scourge, etc - but never used them and scolded friends who did. I pride myself on not being a thief.) However, I would ask a greater question - why aren't the violated IP holders going after these 'rogue websites' themselves? Why does this become the government's job to search and destroy - especially in a civil matter?
