Washington Watch This

You may have noticed heated discussions about "COICA"

This is what it is:
S.3804 -- Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (Introduced in Senate - IS)

I won't summarize it. It's not a long document. Moreover, as you read the bill itself, there is a function (look for the + sign in square brackets) so that you can submit your own comments.

There is also a comments page (2 pages, now) where copyright owners are voicing their opinions of pirates and their own suggestions for what needs to be done about internet copyright infringement.

If you don't like the bill as written, suggest improvements! It's your right, and a unique opportunity.
