    SOPA is just a good scare they gave us, to know they have the power to pull the plug. I doubt they would have actually done it, but i believe they”ve made their point.
    Megaupload went down at the same time, and because of SOPA not many people cared. After that other filehosting websites got scared and shut down. It’s a domino and no one knows where it stops.

    SOPA and ACTA are BAD. Actually it was government who tired broke our freedom and america are protest against SOPA, PIPA, and ACTA.
    No one like ACTA. ACTA is the 2x worst than SOPA.

      Yes rightly said,ACTA is worse than SOPA,also its not only bad for U.S.,its bad for even other countries.
      If DMCA act can be applied everywhere,other countries should also fear about that acts like SOPA,PIPA and ACTA can be applied elsewhere too.
