Legal "The Stop Online Piracy Act is being constructed to allow a stranglehold on the American Internet. Make no mistake. Its constructors are building it with this intent in mind. Just like the Great Firewall of China, the Stop Online Piracy Act is a misnomer. Hidden behind an innocuous name, the bill's intent is not to stem piracy as its proponents suggest, its true intent is to control the Internet itself." McCarthy would be proud.

No, they want to control what people do on the internet to prevent you from even knowing about illegal downloading. Just plain stopping or deterring people from downloading is a different issue for them. Even criminal laws aren't created to prevent, they are created to deter.
