Firefox Extension to Bypass SOPA Restrictions

A lot of people have been opposing the full implementation of SOPA and seems like a firefox extension is ready to help those who like to have their downloads "free" lol. Has anyone tried this though?

By simply installing this browser extension, online surfers can access pirated content and contested services even if the DNS servers of their local ISPs block them. Just click the DeSopa button and Firefox will send the client request to DNS servers outside the US. DeSopa will cache the IP response of valid servers to resolve future DNS requests faster....

....DeSopa is slower at first usage as compared with DNS servers provided by ISPs. DeSopa has to compare responses from three different offshore DNS services. Moreover, this tool will not work for millions of websites hosted on a common server since they share the same IP address.
