SOPA and PIPA explained clearly [Infographic]

A simple explanation and analysis of what the SOPA and PIPA acts mean.

sopa_and_pipaThere has been quite a lot of discussion about the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect Intellectual Property Act) especially after the one day Wikipedia Black Out.

 Are not the SOPA and PIPA acts beneficial ? Don’t they help wipe off piracy ?

These are all the questions that I had because of the ambiguity and the lack of information. This info graphic prepared by Lumin Consulting helps clear the doubts regarding SOPA and PIPA and explains the various aspects of the acts clearly.

Though the SOPA and the PIPA are now shelved, there are still similar acts (like ACTA) looming around. So, it is worth keeping ourselves informed about such acts.

If someone of your friends is still unclear about the bills, do share it and help wipe off the ambiguity – Let us take a clear stand.
