The congressman who wrote SOPA violated CC licensing by not giving attribution for a photo used on his site. The site starts off with "Thanks for visiting my site", so it appears to be his. The domain is a "people for" type of title, so the domain appears third party even though the content indicates it is the congressman's site. There's also a missing period on the top of the site at the end of the above quoted sentence, so maybe the grammar police will get the site taken down even though photographer DJ Schulte can't yet use SOPA to have it taken down.
