    Not sure how many people have been tracking this but its a big deal to your internet rights.

    American Censorship Day - Call to Stop SOPA and PROTECT IP

    Basically it will allow business to take anybody to court for any action they suspect as infringing on their copyrights.

    For example "It becomes a felony with a potential 5 year sentence to stream a copyrighted work that would cost more than $2,500 to license, even if you are an ordinary noncommercial user. Singing a pop song on Facebook could be a felony."

    No surprise there. Their members don't want to bear the cost of going after people in civil suits.
