hate to argue but anything that protects the IP of the original creator is a good thing
I love to argue, and that's just silly on its face. By that logic shutting down the internet completely would be the ideal solution, since then nobody would have the means to copy content on a large scale.
You don't actually believe that anything that protects IP is a good thing. What you believe is that anything reasonable that protects IP is a good thing, and these laws are not remotely reasonable, for all kinds of obvious reasons. The provision to demand the denial of DNS to alleged infringers alone is enough to make the idea completely untenable, not to mention the incredible mess it would be to try to sort out who is linking to whom.
