Apparently the DoJ is was the understanding that SOPA was approved when they raided megaupload.com and shut them down today. I guess in the end it does not matter if SOPA passes or not considering the DOJ and FBI seem to think that can do whatever the hell they want regardless.

In more appropriate news, hackers suspend service on the DoJ and FBI's website through Denial of Service attacks today in retaliation for suspending megaupload.com.

Well, megaupload was in violation of currently existing anti-piracy laws, but without SOPA, the FBI and DOJ had to do the RIAA's and MPAA's dirty work for them, and in such a way that will actually stand up to legal scrutiny (unlike that SOPA/PIPA horseshit).
