Of course corporations are a serious part of the problem - but they are one part among many. So you return to your well-established theme that IP laws are inherently problematic and that they will only become more so in the future as the inherent tendency manifests itself in the face of new technology. While that is a powerful argument, it is difficult to impose a sledgehammer like SOPA through the more nuanced conventional court system with fair trials, presentation of evidence, balanced consideration of both sides etc etc. The fact that government now rents - nay, whores - itself out to the highest bidder and crafts pre-emptive regulatory legislation as a service to help competitors attack one another for market share, is a serious problem-multiplier in itself. There is much to question in the way the theory-reality gap is being closed, and on whose behalf. This is a game of winners and losers, not a game of justice or legal niceties regarding fair property ownership and use. But then you say that the court approach will not work and that this legislation is the only effective way to police this kind of IP. If that is true, then a lot of re-thinking needs to be done and not just about the nature of IP but about the potential kind of government and society we will move into - either by force or by choice. I daresay you will posit our alternatives as being a dichotomy between either a dilution of intellectual property rights or else the implicit acceptance of some kind of developing IP fascism?
