Copyright Office Will Endorse SOPA Anti-Piracy Bill

Brace yourself for the shocking news that *gasp* the head of the U.S. Copyright Office is backing the Stop Online Piracy Act. I don't think anyone saw this coming! big grin

A copy of Pallante's testimony obtained by CNET describes SOPA as "the next step in ensuring that our law keeps pace with infringers." (Part of her job is to provide advice to Congress on copyright law.) "It is my view that if Congress does not continue to provide serious responses to online piracy, the U.S. copyright system will ultimately fail," Pallante's testimony says.
