I'm not sure about what exactly SOPA/PIPA/ACTA would do to "censor the internet", but online piracy should be stopped.
I believe Notch, the maker of MineCraft has once said something along the lines of:
"If one person pirates a game, he/she will tell his/her friends about the game if he/she likes it. If his/her friends listen and aren't pirates, they may buy the game, and enjoy it. So, while I lose one potential purchase, I gain several more in return."
Or something like that.
Remember, not everyone pirates or even knows how to pirate games. And some people who pirate do it to try out the game, and if they like it, they buy it.
