Technology experts, “the people”, The White House, and now even it’s co-sponsors are against it; but Sen. Harry Reid plans to move forward with PIPA (PROTECT IP Act).
In a short appearance on Meet the Press on Sunday, Senate leader Harry Reid continued to insist that the Senate intended to move forward with PIPA, despite the widespread concerns, despite the White House’s statement against the bill, and despite multiple Senators — including bill co-sponsors — asking him to hold off putting the bill to a vote.
This makes me wounder is Reid: stupid, incompetent, or corrupt? Despite his claims (which sound alarmingly like those coming from the MPAA/RIAA) no hard evidence has been presented to show that PIPA will create or save a single job. What’s more is his lack of understanding the infrastructure of “the internet” and what PIPA (and SOPA) will do to break it.
