What is SOPA?
SOPA is what the big media corporations have always wanted; and it is what they have been working towards for more than a decade. SOPA makes someone else take responsiblity for enforcing copyright owners rights; and forces smaller organisations who do not have the resources to respond to accusations of copyright infringement; into a policing roll where they have no choice but to comply with the directives of the larger media orgainisations.
It sounds like a hair brained computer geek conspiracy theory doesn’t it.
But it isn’t …
It’s SOPA and Protect IP - the Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Bills currently before US Parliamentary Congress; and it is due to be passed into legislation and become law very soon.
