I think Cory Doctorow explains this situation quite well. It's because politicians don't know how to tackle the issues of technology like they do with other problems. I agree lobbying is a huge problem and I don't think we'll actually win any "war". What I do think will happen is there will be some slippery slope in that something similar but not as radical as SOPA/PIPA pass which leads to other bills to fix the issues with the previous. It won't be until the congressmen or the average joe can't go to wikipedia to do a quick query or youtube to pass some time on lunch break because the sites are sued out of existence that someone it will really become an "issue". http://boingboing.net/2012/01/10/lockdown.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+boingboing%2FiBag+%28Boing+Boing%29
