Legal The saga surrounding SOPA will be dominating the headlines for a while yet, and today is no different. First of all, and most importantly, the European Parliament has adopted a resolution against SOPA, while also calling for net neutrality to become part of EU law. Second, and this is also interesting, we now have a list of software companies which are against freedom of speech on the web. Unsurprisingly, Apple and Microsoft are on this list. Update: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has spoken out against SOPA. Update II: Tumbler's anti-SOPA message on their website generated almost 90000 (!) phone calls to representatives. Amazing.

So what you're saying is that Amercians* are really small minded when it comes to politics. NIMBY syndrome at it's best!
Frankly, that system makes a lot of sense for 18th century, not much for anything post universal suffrage.

* - nothing anti-American in particular most people are small-minded.
