DeMaura explained that SOPA’s intent is to try the change the way the Internet is regulated, something he feels doesn’t really need to be changed.

“If there were ever a set of regulations that were working pretty well…it’s those that govern the Internet.”

DeMaura said that SOPA would penalize websites that link to other websites, a move that would severely hamper the way the Internet works. He said that, while online piracy is a major issue, this bill is not the way to solve it. DeMaura said that Congress is due to vote on the bill in a matter of weeks, and that everyone needs to be educated about this bill to prevent it from passing.
