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.

Ron Paul, duh. But Pelosi.......????

Did not expect that from her. +1.

(For those of you outside the US, Pelosi is almost universally reviled as being dishonest I think from both the left and right.)

Yeah, anytime I see "Pelosi" the hair on my back stands up and I start looking around nervously like something bad is about to happen. ;)
