SOPA & PIPA ... the argument's not over.

Panama News interviewed international musicians, including Varoon on their perspective on SOPA & PIPA. Following appeared in The Panama News, Volume 18, Number 1, January 27, 2012 ..
The Panama News consulted a number of musicians here and abroad --- the most famous of whom did not answer --- about the proposed US legislation and the issues involved. We asked, in English or Spanish as appropriate, these questions:

As a musician who could be affected by US "anti-piracy" laws like the proposed SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect Intellectual Property Act), and the existing laws such as were used to shut down the New Zealand-based website Megaupload:
  1. Do you support or oppose laws that prohibit music file sharing on the Internet?
  2. Do you support or oppose worldwide regulation of the Internet by US laws?
  3. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) says that about this subject it defends the interests of musicians. Do you believe that this is really so?
  4. What do you think that musicians need to protect their interest in profiting from their own creations in this age of the Internet?
Following are some of their responses.
