Think about it:
• Fansites have to have written consent from the respective games in order to become even online.
• Any Foreign-based site will be blocked out from US-based servers so they can no longer be used by Citizens that infringe on the SOPA/PIPA base.
• Copyrights are based by big corporations, thus a normal citizen who "Accidentally" infringes on a link can be sent to jail for 5 solid years. With a frig load of fines. :/

You are indeed correct. It would also "break" the way in which the DNS system is designed as it wouldn't be returning an "authoritive" response from the DNS when removed. DNS is designed with basic return data that your computer checks against the something to determine if the DNS response is real or fake (very basic but DNSSEC is building upon this).
Whats funny is how it would have been implemented. The bill would block DNS servers so you couldn't go to http://www.runehq.com. You could still access the IP of the server though (220.127.116.11 looks like that, but those are random numbers)
I've just read an article on torrentfreak about EMIs VP saying he is against it and he mirrors my arguments as to the way forward with regards to piracy. I'll also try to refind the "The Sims 3 - Encouraged to leaked" link.
