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.

She's a Rep, not a Senator, and she happens to represent SF, so I suppose that makes sense. On the other hand, I'm not sure what proportion of tech companies are actually against SOPA. In terms of constituents, however, I can imagine that most of the SF tech crowd would personally be against it.
