Internet & Networking The Obama administration has responded to two petitions regarding SOPA, but in true political fashion, the response is 838 words of absolutely nothing at all. Here's a link, but don't complain to me about losing 10 minutes of your life reading this empty drivel. How about taking a stand for once, eh?

They'll likely support anything that doesn't appear to be a blatant ignorance of the technological issues.

There is at least some suggestion that "strong due process" will be expected... which is pretty much the opposite of what SOPA was calling for.


This bit is interesting: "The organizer of this petition and a random sample of the signers will be invited to a conference call to discuss this issue further with Administration officials and soon after that, we will host an online event to get more input and answer your questions."

As one of the signers of the petitions in question, I wonder if I'll get invited ;)

In the grand scheme of things, I still expect little opposition when this bill hits the POTUS desk.
