According to this article on TorrentFreak, a new add-on for Firefox called DeSopa, cleverly circumvents SOPA DNS blocking.

When installed, users can click a single button to resolve a blocked domain via foreign DNS servers, bypassing all domestic DNS blockades and allowing the user to browse the site though the bare IP-address (if supported).

"I feel that the general public is not aware of the gravity of SOPA and Congress seems like they are about to cater to the special interests involved, to the detriment of Internet, for which I and many others live and breathe," DeSopa developer T Rizk told TorrentFreak.
