SOPA? How about NOPA!

Such leading websites as Google, Wikipedia, Reddit and Boing Boing have either shut down, or delayed their load in time in an attempt to protest congressional antipiracy bills they say amount to censorship.
SOPA and PIPA seemed to have the right intent to stop piracy and phishing online, however reports say their methodology is flawed. According to the LA Times, already three major co-sponsors of SOPA and PIPA antipiracy bills have publicly withdrawn their support due to the weight of  heavy protests.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.)  says on his facebook page:
 ”Congress should listen and avoid rushing through a bill that could have many unintended consequences.”
Wikipedia, Reddit and about 10,000 other websites blacked out their pages Wednesday with messages warning of the dangers of the legislation and urging people to contact their congressional representatives. Dan Weiser, a spokesman for the House office of the chief administrative officer says,
“Due to the black outs, there has been a manageable increase to House member websites”
I thought censorship was unAmerican?!
