So reading all over that SOPA is Dead(tm) .. however .. it’s not really dead till withdrawn. So I have concerns that it’s a red herring. Especially since we’ve seen congress backdoor legislation ( NDAA anyone ) when they couldn’t do it publicly. I am still going thru with the blackout as I believe that awareness needs to be raised. Hopefully people will see and react.
I did see an interview/debate on UP between Reddits Alexis and the VP and Gen Counsel of NBC. It wasn’t bad… I feel like Alexis got caught on the whole idea of ‘finding a legit way to access content’ .. but the VP was a total ass: interrupting the interview several times and spouting talking points instead of answering questions and debating on the substance of the issue. You can see it here .
