Why is the Head of the Democrats Supporting & Co-Sponsoring SOPA?

Why is the Head of the Democrats Supporting SOPA?

"If you're looking for someone local to blame for any of your internet-related problems, look no further than Democratic Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Ted Deutch.

That's because they're two of the 30 cosponsors of a House bill titled the "Stop Online Piracy Act" -- and the Senate side's bill, the "Protect Intellectual Property Act" -- which nerds have been freaking out about for weeks and the rest of the world is discovering today.

(But seriously, just Google "Wikipedia blackout workaround" if you really just can't handle all this.)

The thought, at least among the technology world, is that SOPA sucks.

The critics say it goes beyond its intention of stopping online piracy and, sparing you the technical mumbo-jumbo, gives the Justice Department and copyright holders unheard of power. "
