Let’s make this perfectly clear though. We are against internet piracy of content, but these laws are bad for the internet, bad for business, and they are actually bad for independent content makers. These laws have stipulations in them that allow sites to be shutdown and blocked without due process and court orders. The SOPA legislation even has measures in it that break the underlying functions of the internet.

For a slightly more detailed view on why even though we’re against pirating content, we at Just for Bands feel that you shouldn’t worry about it please see our article discussing “The Gaiman Principle.”
