MPAA: SOPA will pass with strong bi-partisan support.

[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/2011/12/74wxfr.jpg[/newsimage]Following the House Judiciary Committee's decision last week to postpone a vote on the controversial Stop Online Piracy Act until this Wednesday, the MPAA has already predicted a big win for copyright holders.

MPAA is blowing hot air. They know their best chance to get this through without major changes has slipped away. Their bought and paid for representative couldn’t ram it past his fellow committee members fast enough. Now the internet corporations have weighed in against it and are building opposition.

Some form of SOPA or the Senate’s Protect IP act will probably pass next year, but lets hope it gets neutered enough that it doesn’t cripple the internet, or free expression.

Eventually, so many of these copyrgiht laws are going to entangle one another cancelling each other out through some fancy lawyer dancing. If you really want to fix the copyright laws… go back to the DMCA. That’s the slippery slope from which permissions to censor the internet slip & slide into the lexicon of world law.

@ hogger129 they caused the messed they are trying to blame on others. Not until the music lobby machine industry comes to grip with a REALITY check they will never go anywhere the Internet and Piracy is here to stay regardless of what want one wants to have. They the lobbyist need to rethink their business model and give more control or all control to the Music Authors the real creators of the music to sell and distribute their music will they ever recover and learn a new TRICK…the Customers matter more then their fat EGO bank accounts…

REMEMBER aka The MUSIC AUTHORS are the real creators not the music lobby machine industry…
