Business Software Alliance Withdraws Support for SOPA

It's funny how fast a group can do an about face on something they "fully supported" just last week. The BSA represents companies including Microsoft, IBM, Dell and Hewlett-Packard.

"Due process, free speech, and privacy are rights that cannot be compromised. And the security of networks and communications is indispensable to a thriving Internet economy. Some observers have raised reasonable questions about whether certain SOPA provisions might have unintended consequences in these areas," Holleyman wrote.
