I've read somewhere that all these media organisations have been lobbying for SOPA etc, but bearing in mind they have one of the smallest shares of GDP and export etc in the US, they should have no say in forcing the hand of the US government. I personally agree, but as is typical in this world, money will always talk, however, if we as consumers threaten to turn off US TV shows and abstain from attending US films, I wonder how quickly they'd back down. For once, we consumers have the upper hand and we should use it. In plain speaking, if they are going to censor our internet, then we have every right to censor US films and TV.
