H.R.3261 “Stop Online Piracy Act” and S.968 “PROTECT IP”, could radically change the landscape of the Internet. These bills provide overly broad mechanisms for enforcement of copyright which would restrict innovation and threaten the existence of websites with user-submitted content, such as youtube, reddit and google.
