I think you just perfectly articulated why this would be a stupid law in it's present form.

Have you actually read the bill? Nothing that you said is correct, and all that it takes for a website to be blacklisted is for the company to simply be accused of hosting pirated content (aka users on the website file sharing, which happens on basically every website).
Even if you could stop people from pirating stuff on the internet, shutting down websites because some of the users are breaking the law isn't the right way to go about doing it.
No, that's my opinion. I don't feel like elaborating on a starcraft forum, sorry.(I mean, you can read a lot of explanations in this thread, though I didn't read all of it)
Unless you're a large corporation owning a lot of IP personally, sopa is insanely bad.
What a load of crap. Remember Tribes? Piracy nearly killed that small developer. You can live in a fantasy world where software pirates are the noble Robin Hoods fighting to keep us safe from the evil robber barons, or you can get a dose of reality and realize the piracy makes it harder for developers to succeed.
Government controlling the internet: worse.

not sure if serious.
You do realize how dangerous it is to have ignorant politicians craft laws that astute lawyers can exploit, right?
