Marketplace for Wednesday, January 18, 2012

As major websites across the Internet take aim at the Stop Online Piracy Act today, we look at the economic impact of Internet piracy and counterfeiting. Oil prices are shooting up and Saudi Arabia is currently demanding $100 a barrel. Senior business correspondent Bob Moon delves deeper into the subject of Mitt Romney and special tax breaks for investments. And a Democrat and a Republican each speak about whether President Obama should be worried about the upcoming election.
