Hollywood’s top lobbyist and former Sen. Chris Dodd is threatening to cut off campaign funds to President Obama’s re-election effort because of anger over the White House appearing to side with tech companies in a bitter fight over anti-piracy legislation.
Incidentally, most of the Republican candidates have come out against the bills. So it’s the entire progressive movement, President Obama and the Republican presidential candidates who are teaming up against this thing. Strange.
Meanwhile, I think some of these guys don’t really understand how the legislation enforces the anti-piracy provisions, and how the enforcement process involves censorship and, ultimately, a corporate takeover of the internet. They’re just going along with their bosses at the RIAA and MPAA. And the rest are just corporate shills.
