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?

It is interesting that they didn't remove the link in the petition (mirrored below). It was obviously included to prove a point - that the administration's own website would be guilty under the provisions of SOPA.

As my understanding goes, so long as the law was enforced without favoritism, whitehouse.gov would be subject to take down without a court order.
