I'm Coming a Little Late to This Party...

But SOPA, the Stop Online Piracy Act currently being fast-tracked through Congress, seems like a lousy idea to me. You can draw your own conclusions here, here, and here.

(Hint: Under SOPA, posting these links to copyrighted material could get not only my blog, but Blogger shut down.)

I'm pretty sure this law, at least as I understand it, would not survive a First Amendment challenge. But how much damage could it do to the Internet's rising talent in the meantime?

Make up your own mind. I'm going to do some more research into this.


Hat tip to Seth Godin for putting the word out about this. Thanks, Seth!
