Will ACTA/SOPA/PIPA prohibit online anime watching?

Ok,i know SOPA/PIPA are still on hold in the States,but ACTA passed in many countries (most countries in Europe,along with Japan,New Zealand etc.),and yes,it still has to be customized for every country but i'm worried what could it do in general?Will we still be able to watch anime online?

I REALLY hope it won't go that far,but if it does,i don't want to live on this planet anymore..

    Well no one knows what ACTA does since everything is blacked out from us but it will have a lot of damage , even more than SOPA or PIPA , I think there will be a drought in pirated content for a while but pirates always find new ways .

    Edit : yeah Megaupload shut down because of money laundering too , the other websites just got scared and freaked out , if these bills do pass people will go on riots , this is just like having an FBI agent right behind you watching everything you do , honestly this is man vs government in the making , it will be a legendary period in history , try not to worry so much , I did and I fell into depression for a long time , everything that will happen will happen and there is no stopping it . besides the fight against SOPA and PIPA has been going on for a long time so just imagine how long you will stay freaked out , it's not worth it , Besides Anonymous is on their backs , people are protesting so I suggest you join this fight in any way you can .

    The following free sites will be unaffected because they get permission from the copyright holders (or are run by the copyright holders), and each view gives people with the rights a small amount of money. Even if one or more of these sites closes for some reason or another, there's always netflix and other pay-to-watch sites.

    In conclusion: Online anime watching won't be prohibited; it'll just be redirected to more legal sources.

    ...not that I'm for these bills or anything... They're stupid and full of unnecessary censorship and bullying. But now you know the best sites to watch anime on because they'll never be impacted by copyright laws.

    I constantly use uncomplicated Anime. It has a great number of animes on it, and maximum of them are finished. And for a great number of the movies they use there very own videoplayer that buffers (plenty) rather quickly.

    They wouldn't affect the legality of it. All they would affect is how the government is permitted to stop it in cases where it is illegal.
