What is SOPA? An Infographic
SOPA is Stop Online Piracy Act
Also known as House Bill 3261 or H.R. 3261, SOPA is a bill that was introduced in the United States House of Representatives on October 26, 2011.
According to Wikipedia, if this bill is made into a law, it would expand the ability of U.S. law enforcement and copyright holders to fight online trafficking in copyrighted intellectual property and counterfeit goods.
By the way, Wikipedia will black out tomorrow i.e. 18th Jan, 2012, for 24 hours, to raise awareness about SOPA.
Americancensorship.org has created an infographic to explain SOPA and its effects. We have shared that infographic here for our readers.

Update: Google is showing a black patch covering its logo on the homepage, to show its support for the anti-SOPA campaign.
