Heard about this one today mostly because of the hubub progressive hero Ron Wyden is putting up in opposition to it. But co-sponsors include solid progressives like Di-Fi, Pat Leahy, and most of liberal Hollywood, so I'm torn.

On the one hand, if there are websites, etc. that are just straight-up stealing movies, music, etc., I can see how that not only hurts the mulit-millionaire stars, but all the middle class folk that make those rich people who they are. On the other, Wyden's got a point - this is a really broad bill. He likened it to a bunker buster, when what was needed was a precision missile. So I'm torn. Thought I'd open it to the DU community to help me make up my mind. Anyone have this bill on their radar?
