The MPAA’s Attempt to Revive SOPA Through A State Attorney General

Google is accusing the Motion Picture Association of America of "trying to censor the internet."

According to The Verge, "at the beginning of this year, the MPAA and six studios آ… joined together to begin a new campaign" to figure how it could secretly revive SOPA. It "joined together to begin a new campaign" to achieve wholesale site-blocking by "[convincing] state prosecutors to take up the fight against [Google]." The movie studios "budgeted $500,000 a year towards providing legal support"آ—and the MPAA later sought up to $1.175 million for this campaign.
