Microsoft Opposes SOPA Copyright Bill

It looks like more and more companies are voicing their opposition to the Stop Online Piracy Act. Microsoft is not supporting SOPA in its current form because "valid and important questions have been raised about the bill."

While the wording of SOPA hasn't changed over the last four weeks, the politics have. A person familiar with the situation told CNET that BSA's volte-face came after Microsoft and, to a lesser extent, other members of the trade association had reviewed the bill and informed Holleyman of their displeasure.
