Will SOPA End The Internet As We Know It? Does The Manager's Amendment Protect Citizens Free Speech?

If SOPA is passed will there be extensive, crippling internet censorship?  According to Opie's son SOPA will cause massive internet censorship.  Last night I learned of the Manager's Amendment which was added to the bill.  Does this amendment address the concerns that citizens have about this anti-piracy legislation indiscriminately targeting American citizens First Amendment rights on the internet?   The ACLJ seems to think that the Manager's Amendment to SOPA addresses this issue. Our congress critters are way too willing to give up citizens liberties in the name of "protection" or "safety".  David Gorodyansky of Forbes says that SOPA is the "equivalent of the Great Firewall of China here at home." 

Here is a video on the internet censorship bill, SOPA.
