How SOPA, et al. could waylay open source

http://j.mp/u8hgFK  (IT World)

   "The article goes on to highlight the various examples of software that
    could be affected by a SOPA-based law: VPN, proxy, privacy, or
    anonymization software--including SSH; software that works with zone
    files for generic top-level domains; or "client-side DNSSEC resolver
    that uses multiple servers until it finds a valid signed entry."
    Basically, any software that a private copyright holder might suspect
    be used for the stealing or hosting of copyrighted material. And
    again, no legal proof required."
