The Stop Online Piracy Act

Brian Pellot considers the potential consequences of the bill. The case The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), currently being debated in the US house of representatives, aims to strengthen the enforcement of copyright infringement laws online. The bill would allow the Department of Justice and individual copyright holders to seek court orders that would bar US search engines, advertisers and internet service providers from linking to, doing business with or allowing access to infringing websites at home and abroad.

AOL put together a marketing plan that included mailing CDs with their software to every man, woman, child and family pet in North America. The plan worked, though, as people were signing up as fast as AOL could send the CDs out.

Internet pioneer Leonard Kleinrock on the 'dark side' of the Web. What is the difference between a router and a modem? Answer: Routers and modems are two of the most common computer peripherals, yet many people don't know the function of each one.

While the two devices may look similar, they each serve a difference purpose. Fortunately, the functions of the two devices are pretty easy to understand. A router is a small box that allows multiple computers to join the same network (see below). While early routers provided several Ethernet ports for wired connections, most modern routers offer wireless connectivity as well. These "wireless routers" often have one or two moveable antennas on the sides, though some models house the antennas inside the enclosure.

While connecting to a router provides access to a local network (LAN), it does not necessarily provide access to the Internet. A modem is a device that provides access to the Internet (see below). The modem connects to your ISP, which typically provides either cable or DSL Internet service. To summarize, the device connection order is outlined below: Definition of Internet by Merriam-Webster.
