Submission + - What Wikipedia Won't Tell You (nytimes.com)

GLMDesigns writes: "According to Cary H. Sherman, a chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America we have all been mislead about SOPA. I quote:

Misinformation may be a dirty trick, but it works. Consider, for example, the claim that SOPA and PIPA were “censorship,” a loaded and inflammatory term designed to evoke images of crackdowns on pro-democracy Web sites by China or Iran. Since when is it censorship to shut down an operation that an American court, upon a thorough review of evidence, has determined to be illegal? When the police close down a store fencing stolen goods, it isn’t censorship, but when those stolen goods are fenced online, it is?
