What makes you think they will lose? They passed DMCA and it looks like they will pass ACTA too. Once its law you can't do much about it short of a revolution and overthrowing the powers that be. For that to happen people need to be aware this is happening, but no one does. Ask your friends if they've even heard of this, chances are most haven't, and don't care. They will pass the laws in secret. And this should prove once and for all that Obama is not going to bring about any 'change', he's just another greedy politician.
