This panel explored the aftermath of the controversy over the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act (PIPA). What are the lessons to be learned? What are the arguments on either side? If SOPA and PIPA contained fatal flaws, what are other alternatives to protect intellectual property, whether online or offline, without stifling innovation or expression in the tech and start-up communities?
