Today on Your Call: What does the struggle over online piracy mean for the future of the internet?

On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect Intellectual Property Act. What would these bills actually do?   The issue has been pitted as Hollywood versus Silicon Valley.  How will this affect the rest of us?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.  How do you think intellectual property should be protected on the internet?  And how do we balance that with free speech?  It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
