I assume the same would apply to facebook aswell, darn shame lol.
How would it work for something like pirate bay? Obviously it doesn't require a login, so would the download run through the voluntary relays or straight to my own ip?

Which is why I'll be staying away from TOR and anything related to it. I'm quite happy floating on the surface with my water wings. It's much safer up here.

Using Tor to avoid SOPA wouldn't have worked in the first place. That was the first thing I thought of when I first heard about SOPA and PIPA...but both had language that made it illegal for any site to "help" or assist people from accessing those sites which were banned by the laws. It basically would have made Tor illegal for the public to use.
It also could well have been interpreted that just using something like Google to find a file sharing site...even if it wasn't blocked yet would have been illegal. So Google could well have been in violation of the laws for helping people access those sites.
SOPA and PIPA would have basically shut the Tor network down for all intents and purposes.
