Have you heard about it, Is it justified/constitutional, should the Government have the right to censor the internet, should corporations and copyright holds be given this much power?

Don't forget its sister bill, sopa.

And no it is not justified. We constantly attack china for censoring the internet, hollywood is big and in california because of the very thing they are fighting against.
And honestly, I hate the slippery slope fallacy but I think its justified in this case:
We protect ip and all that.
Then we will want to sheild kids from internet porn.
Then we will shut down sites that generally aren't liked.
Then the ones the government doesn't want us to like.
And then only what the government wants.

This most certainly is not freedom, or anything that should be allowed to happen.
And terribly under reported.

I wrote my government paper on protect ip and sopa last week I believe.
