What would a post-SOPA internet look like? Here's a glimpse of a dystopian future.
SOPA casts such a wide net that it would affect the entire online experience as we know it, in ways that reach far beyond the goal of preventing file-sharing. It's easy to feel overwhelmed by the possibilities amid the kerfuffle—words like "censorship" and "felony" have been throw around a lot lately. So we're telling you about some concrete changes that SOPA would set in motion.

probably the same way the other 100 threads about SOPA describe it.

I don't know what a post-sopa net would look like...but thats because thats only 2 steps away.
I know what the destination point looks like where they are trying to walk us all down

A subscription service like cable packages, all corporate big money run, all controlled, and just another television.

Oh, thats always been around
just remove the country code and you can watch it.

its (the 0's = the video number.) you can watch country to country copyrighted stuff without worry. remove all the stuff around the V and make it its own directory

Add: Just tried it on that video, and even though it brings up the video, it doesn't actually play it (error upon hitting play). So, either that trick is found out, or..meh, who knows...but thats the first time it didn't work for me.

LOL! Thanks! Didn't know that. I still find it creepy though...seeing any kind of censorship like
that within the United States.

I think that's after ACTA comes down to where the Pirate Bay is located, SOPA stops links to the pirate bay from being shared, or any alternative to the pirate bay being started in America. SOPA doesn't stop the Pirate Bay, but you are correct to dislike SOPA in favour of the Pirate Bay. The Pirate Bay is not hosted in the USA, merely the plurality of American internet use for illegal file sharing is reflected by the name Pirate, the bay is in Scandinavia.
