As many of you know, there are two bills under review in the House (Stop Online Piracy Act) and Senate (Protect Internet Property Act) that are currently being  discussed in the library world.

For your reference, here’s a link to an informative chart made by Corey Williams of the Washington ALA (American Library Association) Office.  Williams details the specifics of both SOPA and PIPA, as well as the OPEN (Online Protection of and Enforcement of Digital Trade) Act, which some view as a more viable and less stringent alternative to SOPA and PIPA.
