Recent legislation directed at online piracy, the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA), generated a lot of attention. That attention surrounded concerns over the legislation’s breadth and external effects. While detractors’ concerns are understandable, the problem of online piracy is real. But there are legal mechanisms in place to combat online piracy, and those mechanisms are being used by prosecutors and private parties.
