Ireland has signed a controversial amendment dubbed the “Irish SOPA” which reinforces existing copyright law amid widespread concern that it will encroach on Internet freedom.
The new legislation will effectively allow copyright holders to press for legal action against Internet service providers and social networks which show content that infringes copyright legislation. It will force Internet service providers to effectively become censors, by blocking access to these sites

As Hilary Clinton stated, there is a war on information which they (the US) are losing. SOPA is coming whether we like it or not, and whether it's called SOPA or not. Thanks for the update!
I feel sorry for Ireland. It was reported not too many years ago that Irish citizens had more money and savings than any other EU nation. I wonder how long that will remain the case. I believe the quoted figure was 80,000 euros per citizen.
