Nintendo, Sony and EA have all reversed decisions in supporting SOPA

I must've somehow missed this in the hoopla that is New Years, but I'll make it quick. Nintendo, Electronic Arts and Sony Electronics have all followed by example of Microsoft and the Business Software Alliance by kicking the ass of support for SOPA.

This is a good move, as they all know that the land of Internet people will be at their doors with pitch forks if they continued support for the Stop Online Piracy Act. All three of the companies did not make a comment on why they reversed their decision to support SOPA, but the pitch fork image I have in my head does it for me.

 

Keep in mind that not all of Sony land took their support away, with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, Sony Music Entertainment and Sony Music Nashville all still appear on the SOPA list. Let's wait to see how this bill goes, let's all collectively hope that it does not pass.
