I hope SOPA passes

The thing that strikes me most in reading this is that there are a LOT of big corporations -- from Nike to L'Oreal and Revolon to Pfizer -- who I never would have guessed supported this legislation. Damn. I expect this from Disney but not those guys.
Which gets us back to a fundamental point -- money can buy legislation, and corporations have no shame in spending money to buy legislation.
No doubt the involvement of other rich corporations opposing this legislation, helped us to stop it.
Longer term, there's still a bigger problem here: how to keep money from having such tremendous influence over the laws that get passed.
