Stephen Colbert on SOPA

The House of Representatives' Stop Online Piracy Act (H.R. 3261) will chill the speech on the Internet. The reason is that it allows for criminal prosecution unauthorized streaming. The fear of being thrown in jail for sharing videos and information will cripple the Internet.

Last night, Stephen Colbert did a segment on the law. I love it when he cites an FBI report that online piracy costs 200 billion dollars a year but then notes that it's not corroborated. Check out the video.
