So far, many people have just mentioned the abbreviations only. So, I couldn't really understand it. (And the websites I visited regarding this, were so clumsy that I couldn't get the information.) But still I don't understand what effect it would have. Protecting IP address and stopping piracy are good things. Why would someone oppose it? As long as I don't know the effects of it, I'm neither for nor against.

I think that if this is to go against pirate sharing it is a good thing, however if it is going to shut down legit sites and this case no! So it all depends how it is going to be and what kind of interpretation it can have.

I think is kind of impossible because to shut down all of those places that are on the net it's really hard. Actually the net is a spot to share information so from the very beginning this "law" is unfounded. all of this is just because of USA as they are the most privetizers in the world.
