Society has been legislating human behavior since we collectively decided that theft, fraud, murder, selling rotton food, building unsafe structures etc should be against the law. Legislatures write laws that govern human behavior because that is all they really can do. The laws of nature are kind of beyond control.

SOPA may not be the answer to this problem but legislating human behavior to prevent theft, intellectual or physical, is kind of why we have legilatures in the first place.
