The bill also "elevates" the IP attaches out of the US Patent and Trademark Office, and sets them up as their own agency, including a new role: the Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property. Yes, we'll get another IP Czar, this time focused in the Commerce Department.

There is nothing about this that surprises me. I predict that every bit of SOPA will still be enacted. Corporations have paid good money for their shills in congress and they damn well expect some results.
