Continuing on from my previous post, the SOPA process is this:
None of the above sub-points are difficult to implement from a technical point of view. Indeed, we have been doing them for years:
Of course, spammers are equally familiar with these tactics which is why they rotate through domains and IPs so quickly, and why spam filters (and search engine and other types of filters) are so constantly updating their lists of abusive locations.
But the point is that this “censorship” has been voluntary by large services for a long time. It isn’t anything new; compliance with SOPA or PIPA simply means that in addition to keep track of bad guys, companies would have to keep track of one more additional list of copyright infringers.
That doesn’t sound so bad.
No. It doesn't. But at the same time, one could get around it very easily for instance, by running your own recursive DNS server (I do it at home and love it.)
