SOPA is a complete clusterfuck. It seeks to give power to those that will abuse it and will have no effect upon piracy.
Yes, SOPA is a complete clusterfuck, but ... if you want to "fight" a problem, first make sure that IT IS a problem.

Is it the casual, non-commercial motivated content piracy?
Is it the usual commercial content piracy in countries with a low per capita income?

The first cannot be undone, you have to live with it. If you want to make money with digital goods, you better learn to let go after you release this content. The easy-to-copy nature of digital information cannot be separated from digital nature of digital information. If you dont like this, change your business model, sell physical objects like apples or fridges.

The latter ... easy solution. Raise the per capita income and these people will gladly start to buy more and more content from you, the official distributor. Or lower the prices.
