    Well, seems to me. That Google, is against SOPA and have lobbyists fighting it.

    So with the wealth Google have, I don't think SOPA will become anything unless someone more powerful comes out and wants. But right now, Google is stronger than the Film Industry/Music Industry. The internet IS the future, those lames need to accepted and get with the program.

    Content lock all their shit :p

    Google is stronger than the film industry? No, they're not.

    This isnt only a question of money, its a question of the (bought) politicians being promised jobs after their term is over, by the MPAA/RIAA. It's got a real good pull.

    When it comes to the internet, Google and Facebook rule it. They are stronger than any film industry in terms of influence regarding the internet IMO.

    But it could be that those people in the film industry get support from other sectors i.e News Corporations (and those are owned by powerful people - probably more powerful or as powerful as Google).

    Why is it taking tech companies so long to play hardball against the SOPA supporters?
