"Imagine that Congress passed a law setting up a procedure that could require ordinary citizens like you to remove telephone numbers from your phone book or from the 'contacts' list in your phone. What about a policy that cut off the phone lines to an entire building because some of its tenants used the phone to plot thefts or fraud? ... Cutting off phone lines is the closest familiar parallel to what Congress is considering in two bills nicknamed 'SOPA' and 'PIPA' –- the 'Stop Online Piracy Act' and the 'Protect IP Act.'"
