the Internet is going Black

Dear Readers,

If you have not hear about SOPA, you probably do by now as some huge site are going darker to protest SOPA.  

What is SOPA? It is “Stop Online Piracy Act” a bill going throw congress to restrict the internet in order to save copywriters and stand up against internet piracy
The birth of SOPA was on October 26th 2011 to a Texas Republican Lamar Smith, along with 12 co-sponsors where it was first introduced SOPA discussions had been placed on hold but will resume in February 2012. I think SOPA will effect everyone everywhere not only USA if it passes.

Who's opposed to SOPA? Much of the Internet industry and a large percentage of Internet users. Here's the most current list (PDF) of opponents.

My question is.. will it work? & how it will affect us?
