SOPA is unconstitutional

According to legal scholars, like Laurence Tribe, and Mark Lemley, David S. Levine, and David G. Post, the evil Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA, violates the First Amendment by imposing prior restraint, chilling free speech, etc. Every Congresscritter who votes for this blatantly unconstitutional law is violating his obligation to uphold the Constitution and should be impeached.

And a good argument could be made that copyright itself violates the First Amendment.
