As reported on CNET (see excerpt below), here is a great new music video protesting the evil Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA:

Leah Kauffman, a Philadelphia-based singer and songwriter, has released “Firewall” to protest the Hollywood-backed copyright bill, which a House of Representatives committee had been scheduled to debate tomorrow. Earlier today, the committee debate was postponed until 2012.
Opposition from the two musicians is notable because the Recording Industry Association of America has been one of the leading supporters of SOPA and a Senate version called Protect IP.
The RIAA has highlighted opposition from allied groups including the American Federation of Musicians and National Music Publishers Association. And Eagles songwriter Don Henley published an op-ed in August, before SOPA was introduced, calling on Congress to enact Protect IP, which is probably less controversial.
