On SOPA: More To Do

by Christopher Paul on January 17, 2012

Mike Masnick on how far we, the Internet, have come in fighting SOPA and why there is more to do:

This isn’t about one bill. This isn’t about one issue. This is about an entire process. This is about the public — not the big corporations — finally saying “enough is enough” and making Congress recognize that crony capitalism, where subsidies and protectionism are doled out willy nilly to favorite campaign contributors, is not acceptable to the people they’re supposed to represent.

This is about recognizing that the internet and the massive amount new innovation and services — and the worldwide ability to communicate with others — is a game changing innovation for everyone. And we’re going to work damn hard to make sure that it remains open and free.

The whole thing is worth reading.
