Indian ISPs have blocked many websites

Now the government is playing the role of big daddy and deciding for us what to watch and what not to.
They cannot take actions against the sites (as they are out of reach), only blocks the sites locally. This forced preaching ruins the basic idea of free information flow. Of course, India is not alone-- it has joined the existing league only.

The same in the UAE. Are proxies also banned in India? As proxy Websites are blocked in the UAE. Not that it is stopping people from having them.

See in the US they can't block out certain sites because the outburst from the people. We run the internet, the government just makes sure it safe and their is nothing illegal. SOPA and PIPA were purposed I think 2 years ago. Neither acts have been passed and I don't think they will personally.

I don't think SOPA and PIPA are exactly same issue. SOPA and PIPA were aimed to protect copyright holders. Mostly just acts for the benefit of music and film industries. The acts were so mad that is crazy how the US politicians were so close to pass those acts and makes one understand US politicians are just puppets of the corporations.

The issue in UAE, India, China, ..., has to do with Internet censhorship by government of any content they don't want their citizens to reach for whatever reason, not mandatory something to do with copyright issues, probably in most cases nothing to do at all with that and many times something to do with news content.
