Regarding the current flare up over those two Congressional/Senatorial bills, can anyone provide a detailed summary of when and why those two bills were proposed in the first place? IE a factual timeline of the causes behind it.

Instead of going dark today, Ars Technica is using SOPA Resistance Day to devote all its articles to coverage of the issue.

A good start on the bill's history is this article on the sponsors (http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2012/01/a-history-of-ip-violence-how-sopas-and-pipas-sponsors-have-waged-war-on-the-internet.ars).
