One of the big arguments against it is that infringes on peoples right to free (which in america is a constitutional right which cant be messed with), as it also allows media companies to control their "public image" for example if I write a review of game/film/tv show and post it on my blog without the copyright holders permission then my blog could be blocked. We might then end up with a culture of "10/10 or your site gets blocked" which is disgusting.

The worst part of SOPA is that it effects the entire planet, but only congress can vote on it...
