First off, we would like to give huge props and kudos to Techdirt for leading the charge against SOPA. Their daily coverage of this dreadful piece of legislation has been spectacular. We have provided links to some of the top stories of the week regarding SOPA, but visit their site for more in depth coverage and analysis.
The fight is far from over, but this past week definitely goes to the resistance! Congress is hearing the echoing voices of the masses and key players are back-peddling and putting on the brakes. Even the White House has finally come out against the potential consequences SOPA could impose. The Obama Administration acknowledged they “will not support legislation that reduces freedom of expression, increases cybersecurity risk, or undermines the dynamic, innovative global Internet.”
For a recap on what SOPA is all about and for all the major events regarding the debate on its passage, and hopefully, its ultimate defeat, please visit the following:
