I wish the ESA would just get a bit of sense knocked into them cos they're gonna ruin E3, let alone the E3 were nintendo reveal it's new console and it's lineup of games (E3 2011 didn't count)
I suggest you do some research on both SOPA and PROTECT IP (PIPA)

PCIP might not sound bad, right? After all, Child Pornography is a bad thing! We need to do something to stop it, right? Well, that something probably shouldn't include making ISPs keep track of your online activities and report them to the government. A Californa Rep. humorously presented an amendment to rename it "Keep Every American's Digital Data for Submission to the Federal Government Without a Warrant Act."
As for ACTA, it's an international agreement that similar to SOPA. It would empower international borders to legally conduct searches of laptops, MP3 players and cell phones for illegally downloaded music and movies. Travelers with infringing content would be subject to a fine, and their devices could potentially be confiscated or destroyed.
Someone really hates the internet, dayum.
