In the wake of the online protests against the pending PIPA and SOPA anti-piracy bills, Rasmussen asked US voters what their opinion is on the issue.
Should the public worry more about piracy or Internet censorship?
Through a telephone survey voters were asked the following question.
“Which is a bigger problem, that some people download movies online without paying for them or that the government will censor Internet content?”
As it turns out, the majority (71%) is more worried about censorship.
That doesn’t mean that voters believe that piracy is fine though, as two thirds of the respondents agreed to a statement that piracy is theft.
However, if politicians claim to represent the people, they might take note of the result above.
