SOPA + PIPA vs Freedom of Speech

Don’t mind my saying I thought this was the United States, the symbol of Liberty and freedom of speech.

But on the pretext of protecting copyrighted work, SOPA would go as far as limiting what users have to say, and therefore, freedom of speech. Congress and ultimately the Courts [should this law pass] will have to weight the economic and political ramifications stemming from this proposed law.

Will the Entertainment industry with its smaller contribution to the global economy dictate what the larger Internet industry publishes?

If so, what distinguishes this country from dictatorships?
