I don't know much about website hosting, but if the bill goes through does that mean any website as long as it's being hosted by a company based in the US can be shut down? For example REVscene even though it's not from the US could be shut down because it's being hosted by Go-Daddy?

This act pretty much kills all forums and anything that anyone can comment on then...
Obviously companies such as Google, Facebook and Yahoo would be against it because they're the ones that get shut down lol.

'SOPA' is bs, the people supporting the bill probably either are going to be put in control if it's passed, or don't get affected by it/don't use the internet much

^The definition of a "domestic website" in the bill is too broad. It basically states that any domain name with a USA based registrar can be taken down (not solely based on hosting location)

There's a detailed technical analysis on Reddit's blog site written by one of their sysadmins

blog.reddit -- what's new on reddit: A technical examination of SOPA and PROTECT IP

Edit: Under the broad definition, basically any .com/.org/.net etc. domain names can be shut down because they all go through a US-based registrar (Verisign, Registry Pro, Internet Society)

From the sounds of it they would be removing the website from the DNS, so unless you knew the ip of the site you would not be able to get to it right ? If someone just pointed to private DNS servers how would they stop that ?

Pretty much yes. If it was pointed to a private or foreign DNS server then they basically can't do anything.

IMO though the reason why SOPA is so controversial is because of censorship. It's not really intended to stop piracy cause it's so badly written.

Just a side note, Lamar Smith (creator of SOPA) is a copyright violator himself. If this act did pass, he just got a taste of his own medicine.

They purposely made it broad so they'll have jurisdiction over manipulating or bending the bill to their authoritative asses

SOPA's Architect Is Finally Starting to Back Down - Yahoo! News

Quote:
Less than 24-hours after promising not to yield, the Texas congressman and author of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) Lamar Smith is yielding on the bill's controversial language that would allow the government to censor the Internet -- for now. "After consultation with industry groups across the country, I feel we should remove Domain Name System blocking from the Stop Online Piracy Act so that the [Judiciary] Committee can further examine the issues surrounding this provision," Smith said in a Friday afternoon press release. "We will continue to look for ways to ensure that foreign websites cannot sell and distribute illegal content to U.S. consumers."

"The growing anti-SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) support that has swept through the gaming and Internet community found a very big ally today. With websites like Reddit and Wikipedia and gaming organizations like Major League Gaming prepared for a blackout on January 18th – the same day that the House Judiciary Committee hearing on HR 3261was scheduled in Washington, DC – President Barack Obama has stepped in and said he would not support the bill. SOPA has been killed, for now."

I find it kinda funny how the guy who introduced this Bill, Rep. Lamar Smith, has CC Media Holdings as his largest contributor. Surely they wouldn't be whispering certain things in his ear as that would be immoral if he based his decisions on what others are saying... lol.

Wasn't there a bill that was recently passed by US Congress to be able to arrest and detain anyone without any real reason?

Couldn't really say.... but if I were to make a wild guess it would be no since most china domain and websites isn't register here @@ PPS I think stream using servers out in China and good luck getting the Chinese's gov to help lol.

EDIT. However I know a lot of these so call chinese steaming websites have block IP from here.........
