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.

"Please Europe, Help Us" ...you know, you can always backtrack on some of the events & decisions of the 2nd half of XVIII century ;)

(but sort of seriously, if you'd look at, say, Canada - still mild vassals ;p - they seemed to had done better over those two centuries, though more "steady" hence quiet / under the radar ...much less of that Manifest Destiny / exceptionalism / America's Backyard like BS; as for "democracy" one can hardly beat Iceland ...alas, also a place light on PR)
