New House Bill on Piracy

NL- I’m happy and surprised to see that this bill was sponsored by a Republican from Texas! Of course he didn’t write it for the porn industry. It’s actually in support of the Screen Actors Guild & Musicians, so it is for mainstream recordings and movies. Of course it would cover our industry as well. What is telling is the vote by random individuals on the site Popvox.com , 97% OPPOSE this bill…

H.R. 3261: Stop Online Piracy Act
112th Congress: 2011-2012

To promote prosperity, creativity, entrepreneurship, and innovation by combating the theft of U.S. property, and for other purposes.
Sponsor: Rep. Lamar Smith [R-TX21]

Status: This bill is in the first step in the legislative process. Explanation: Introduced bills and resolutions first go to committees that deliberate, investigate, and revise them before they go to general debate. The majority of bills and resolutions never make it out of committee. [Last Updated: Nov 1, 2011 6:20AM]
