SOPA risks creating a "war on online piracy" just like we have a "war on drugs." It sounds great to law abiding citizens, but they don't realize that the government is spending billions of dollars and really not making any headway.

To continue with the parallel, our jails are full to overflowing with drug dealers and countless law enforcement officers have been injured or killed attempting to stop the drug trade. Yet you go out on the street and the drugs are still there. For every shipment that is confiscated, every crop that is burned, 10 more go unnoticed.

Do we want the internet to produce the same results?
