The Stop Online Piracy Act is, essentially, a knee jerk, impotent reaction — one which will most likely have little impact on halting piracy. Despite an overwhelmingly negative response from users online, many major companies, including Sony, support SOPA and that has attracted the attention of online group Anonymous who have issued a threat to directly to Sony.
"Your support of the act is a signed death warrant to SONY Company and Associates," states the above video. "Therefore, yet again, we have decided to destroy your network. We will dismantle your phantom from the internet. Prepare to be extinguished. Justice will be swift, and it will be for the people, whether some like it or not."
While we don't know exactly who was responsible for the great PlayStation Network hack of 2011, many placed blame at the door of Anonymous. It'll be interesting to see if anything actually comes of this.
