Submission + - Poll: Americans Weigh Censorship vs Piracy (activepolitic.com)

bs0d3 writes: In the wake of the online protests against the pending PIPA, SOPA, and ACTA anti-piracy bills, Rasmussen asked US voters what their opinion is on the issue of censorship vs illegal downloading. Through a telephone survey, voters were asked: "Which is a bigger problem, that some people download movies online without paying for them or that the government will censor Internet content?" While 67% agreed that piracy is theft, 71% said that they were more worried about censorship than they were illegal downloading.
