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.

Thankfully there are still enough countries in the EU that remind their elected representatives who they represent. And there are countries that have 0 tolerance to corruption and Scandics don't really understand what "corruption" is.

The lines are as follows(wildly generalising):
- Protestant countries are least corrupt
- Catholic countries are corrupt
- Eastern orthodox countries are very corrupt
(It's more to do with the cultural heritage that religion brings with it, rather than that religion per se)
