The definitive voice on why SOPA is so bad

My old friend Alex Howard has been way out in front of the mainstream media in reporting the dangers of SOPA. Here is a column you must read.

Congress considers anti-piracy bills that could cripple Internet industries

SOPA and PROTECT IP would harm innovation.

I’ve written several posts against SOPA in this blog. I will probably have to write several more in the coming weeks. That’s how putrid I think this legislation is.

But Howard’s O’Reilly Media post captures the potential future we must fight to avoid.

Read it. Then put the pressure on your elected officials to send this thing to the ash heap of awful ideas.
