SOPA explained the right way

Last week I attended a presentation about trends that would be hitting us in 2012. The speaker used keywords to point out the trends. During the presentation the speaker showed the Wikipedia blackout as an example to protest against online piracy... Right... Think again. SOPA stands for "Stop Online Piracy Act" and the blackout was a protest against the SOPA, not a protest against piracy. Copying music is nothing new. Copying probably laid the foundations for companies like Maxell and many others. On the Domino Project blog Seth Godin writes very rightly about changing business models and changing industries. That is what it is about. And yes, it does look like SOPA will not become effective in the States. Click here to read Seth's blog post.
