The article is right about one thing, it really is the tech industry versus content creators battle. Tech has had all the running so far, especially as it is so huge and profitable. No politician is going to want to butt heads with Facebook, Google and Apple with an election looming.
so how would SOPA really help Chris?

if Pirate Bay and other sites are in countries with no restrictions, how is it going to make any difference at all?-

really the only solution here is an entirely cloud based model. Which makes things even scary for free speech.
