SOPA and PIPA explained by Clay Shirkey of TED on GigaOM

What does a kid’s birthday cake have to do with SOPA?

Incredibly excellent presentation on the effects of SOPA and PIPA and the backstory. If you want to know about why these bills are being produced and the real effects and desires of the media industry, this is the plain story. I had some ideas about this, but after watching this presentation, everything becomes very, very clear.
