Critics of a controversial copyright bill known as the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA, are planning to announce an alternative proposal on Thursday, CNET has learned.

Their public discussion draft is intended to provide opponents of the Hollywood-backed SOPA bill, a list that includes much of Silicon Valley, with legislation that they can embrace as a less onerous way to delete “rogue” Web sites from the Internet.

Depending on the details, of course, the new legislation–backed by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.)–could also be viewed as too restrictive.

The Wyden-Issa draft will narrow the definition of a rogue Web site and curb private lawsuits, a person familiar with the discussions told CNET. Representatives of both congressional offices confirmed to CNET that they expect to release the draft on Thursday.
