No, that's the thing -- it would make the US act against international websites. Any site where people have the ability to post comments would be at risk. We use copyrighted images when we use screenshots or photos of celebrities in our avatars. SOPA ignores the concept of 'Fair use'.

Technically, Wikipedia took themselves down for a day to protest SOPA.
