The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), the companion bill to the Senate???s PROTECT IP Act, would further privatize adjudication and punishment. Title I of that law (dubbed the E-PARASITE Act) creates a ???market-based system to protect U.S. customers and prevent U.S. funding of sites dedicated to theft of U.S. property.??? It achieves this by empowering copyright owners who have a ???good faith belief??? that they are being ???harmed by the activities??? of a website to send a notice to the site???s payment providers (e.g. PayPal) and Internet advertisers to end business with the allegedly offending site.
Is TPP worth this?
