Are you saying that things like SOPA are really just efforts to “burn books” (i.e. censorship)? I don’t get that impression. If anything, things like SOPA are attempts to protect creative works, or at least to keep publishers in business, which is the opposite of censorship.

(I’m not saying I agree with things like SOPA, or that they’d work. I’m just saying that their motives are not censorship.)
