Part 2

Then we examine the Stop Online Piracy Act that is now being debated in Congress with Gigi Sohn, the co-founder of Public Knowledge, a Washington D.C.- based public interest group working to defend citizen’s rights in the emerging digital culture. We discuss the dangers posed by this bill to Internet freedom, its embrace of censorship, and the extent to which it is a “stealth” attack on net neutrality. gigi sohn
