What is SOPA and PIPA?

Wikipedia, Wordpress and other sites are black-out today and it is all because of these two bills. Protect IP Act (PIPA) and Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) is the fuss around social media today. If you visit twitter, Stop SOPA and PIPA is trending already worldwide. Even Google has it on their homepage that states Tell Congress: Please don’t censor the web! asking to sign a petition to the Congress. What exactly are these bills, PIPA and SOPA? How it can affect a typical user or anyone who uses the internet. See the video below. 

This article from Gizmodo helped me a lot to understand these two bills also. Here's Google's article about SOPA and PIPA, Don't Censor the WEB.
