This has nothing to do with mobile devices, but it has everything to do with our primarily digital way of life. SOPA, the deranged bill from the House, has been shelved. It is, for now, dead… But its spirit lives on. In the future another bill like SOPA may appear, less crazy and snaggle-toothed, but make no mistake: We can’t quit, because the social conservatives looking to legislate morality, the entertainment industry looking to grasp this imaginary money out of the air as they try and find something else to blame for their failures, and every mook in Washington who ever accepted a donation from the are clever and persistent. I would say that they’ll try again, but they already are with the cutie-pie sounding PIPA.
We as internet denziens need to ensure it fails. Big business needs to learn that they can’t control everything, and the Internet in all its glorious capabilities and profitabilities are due to the people, and to the people it should stay.
