Clay Shirky on SOPA/PIPA

I could spend the next day or so posting nothing but embedded YouTube videos about the evils of SOPA/PIPA, but I'll stop, at least for now, with this TED talk from Clay Shirky, which does two important things:
  • puts these laws in context
  • points out that just stopping SOPA/PIPA is not sufficient; the groups that want all content production to go through them will try again and again, as long as they exist.
UPDATE: That didn't take long.
