I worry that sites like wowinsider and mmo-champ might be more susceptible to the ill-effects of SOPA than the joystiq article states. What if Blizzard/Activision decides they want all world of warcraft related news and discussion limited to their own website? They could very quickly sue AOL or Curse and they would be blocked by the US government. Leaked MOP Beta information - that's a banning. Data mining 4.3 patch items - that's a banning. Linking to a video of user generated in-game content - that's a banning.I don't think Blizzard has a problem with any of these sites, but SOPA would provide them a quick path to block all news releated to their IP.
