The U.S. House of Congress (the American parliament) introduces new Internet censorship bills like SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (PROTECT-IP Act 2008) every year or two like clockwork.
Maddox, one of the world’s top bloggers, really zeroes in on the actual uselessness of the SOPA protests worldwide in his latest essay:—
