It's A Beautiful New Post-SOPA World!

Six months after the global consciousness raising exercise that was the fight against SOPA/PIPA, we are starting to see some real changes. The European Parliament has rejected ACTA overwhelmingly, while the USTR has embraced limitations and exceptions as a "valuable part of the copyright ecosystem." As I explain in this blog post, this creates an opportunity for civil society to exert some serious pushback on Hollywood's anti-innovation agenda.

And please don't bother to explain how much of a fight we have, etc. Duuuuhhhhhhhh . . . . It does not take genius to see that the Intellectual Property mafia are still strong and twice as determined as ever before. What is different is opportunity -- for those who know how to exploit it.
