They want you to be a couch potato

I think this video is really worth watching - it not only explains why SOPA is so bad, but it gets to the underlying motives of big media.  Ultimately the goal (which Shirky outlines so well) is to stop the amateur from creating content.  Big media companies want you to be a passive consumer of the content they create, not an active creator of new content for which they earn no revenue.  I urge everyone to watch this!
