It might be an anagram of *’Soap’ but America’s proposed draconian ‘Stop Online Piracy Act’ (SOPA)*continues to get murkier.
The SOPA bill,*which will see online inovation and the freedom of speech currently enjoyed by so many around the world stifled by the whims of luddite*industries, has been met with serious critical concern from Google, eBay, Facebook, Mozilla and more.
In a move that is almost so bizarre it makes you wonder whether or not we’re actually living in some really bad sitcom - one so bad you*definitely*wouldn’t pirate it – the American House of Representatives has barred*all opponents of the bill – from civil rights groups to some of the worlds leading technology corporations – from testifying.
The only groups who are allowed to testify at the hearing are those who support the bill – the Hollywood studios, the American Chamber of Commerce and*Pharmaceutical*companies running scared from their drugs being sold online at reasonable prices.
The whole farce is such a damning mis-weight of the scales of justice*that i’m*surprised*the lady is still standing.
Feel free to regiester your*disapproval to the*Judiciary’s*leadership @ act.demandprogress.org
