What Sandra Schmitz was writing about was a brief review of what the Protect Internet Providers Act (PIPA) and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) was about. In short, both acts would let internet providers, Time Warner, Comcast, Verizon, ect. Powers to remove certain websites from accessing certain foreign websites that are known to harbor infringing copyright content such as movies, TV shows, and music. With those overseas sites distributing this infringed content, the US government decided to try and pass certain acts like PIPA and SOPA in order to stop these certain websites to stop serving such content in their country.
