The most immature excuse an otaku could give to go against SOPA...

I've been lurking around threads that talks about this SOPA thing going on and i find that many "otakus" are saying that they are against SOPA because if it took place, they wouldn't be able to stream free anime online. <-- This here is a very stupid reason.
Have you notice that many seiyuus have voice out against free online streaming? There was an article posted last year (i read it here in Otaku Streamers) from some news about seiyuus voicing out against free streaming websites. It was something like this..(this was last year so there might be some error in the speeches but i know what it was about cos i still remember the two sentence that one particular voice actress said which left a big impact on me...)
---When the seiyuu read about where people watch anime and netizens commented "I watch it on an overseas website" "I just stream it online lol xD". She commented back "Do you think it's funny that we don't sometimes earn enough to be able to eat? We may die of hunger, is that LOL?"---
It went something like that but i clearly remember the hunger bit and LOL cos it was a big impact. So yeah, if you watch and like or love anime, you should be doing the right thing. They earn lower than what they deserve and that is not right. I mean..if you are still not convinced of why your excuse is still immature (the excuse being "if that means i cannot stream anime online anymore, then i will protest against it), then imagine yourself as a singer and everyone is downloading your songs illegally. Guess what? Your not making any money...Happy? I guess not.
I know that some people are young so you might not really understand what i'm talking about but one day, you'll know and you'll regret what you did <-- no offense btw.
