Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Senate’s PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) — would have a disastrous effect on online freedom of speech. In other words, SOPA act will censor you from accessing certain websites and block all access to other areas of the internet that the United States government does not want you to access.
If we will just sit and do nothing It will allow the US government to take down any website at its discretion for any copyright violations. The problem is that often it is hard to know whether certain content is copyrighted or not. Sites like Reddit.com, Digg.com, Youtube.com, internet hosting companies, small websites, newspaper websites, Flickr.com, Wikipedia.org, etc could get into trouble for having copyrighted materials.
It is essentially a backdoor that would allow the government to censor all of the US based internet (which is a lot of the english internet).
