Is online activism against H.R. 3261, the Stop Online Piracy Act, working?
Today, in response to the day of protest against the proposed law, Congressman Rush Holt declared, “The so-called Stop Online Piracy Act (H. R. 3261), SOPA, would make the internet less secure, less competitive, and – worst of all – less free. It will not have my vote.”
U.S. Representative Raul Grijalva got online and wrote, “I oppose SOPA and will not vote for it. This has gone well beyond protecting legitimate intellectual property rights – we’re now talking about censoring the Internet and letting companies restrict what you get to view.”
Representative Jim Moran told constituents, “I oppose SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act). The internet should remain open.”
