Thats like speeding, getting caught, and saying "what the hell is your problem, pulling me over for openly breaking the law?"

the only reason websites were up in arms over this (sopa, pipa) is because it was going to cost them money and punish them for the wrongs of other companies like Megaupload. not saying this is right to punish them because they link it, but punishing a company who makes ALL of their profits from pirated goods doesnt bother me...
hosting sites are the middlemen. people are the facilitators... they aren't targeting the right people.
