SOPA, the Stop Online Piracy Act, is a bill designed to help fight copyright infringement on the internet. While the intent of the bill is to stop illegal downloads of music, movies, games, etc., the vague wording of the bill means that websites such as Google (and any search engine for that matter), Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, etc. (essentially, any website where people can legally obtain unrestricted information) can also be effected. This could lead to a dangerous slide into restrictions of freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution, specifically, Freedom of Speech and, to a certain extent, Freedom of the Press.
