A couple of legislations intended to target online services facilitating copyright violation – SOPA and the Protect IP Act – have drawn attention of both opponents and supporters. Now the leading supporters of the legislations are going to address some concerns of the government about the potential threats that might influence legitimate online services.
Senior Executive Vice President for Global Policy and External Affairs for the Motion Picture Association of America, Michael O’Leary, believes that the industry will soon see some movement. He also said that this can probably not be enough to satisfy tech firms that are strongly opposing both of the legislation: Senate’s Protect IP Act and House’s Stop Online Piracy Act. Indeed, the MPAA pointed out that the current situation shows that some of the tech companies are not looking forward to reaching a compromise, simply because the services like the current situation to operate within.
The comments were voiced in a briefing, which included the Directors Guild of the United States and the International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employee’s Union. For example, DGA’s Associate Executive Director for Government and International Affairs, Kathy Garmezy, claimed that their opposition didn’t feel constrained by a need to tell everyone the truth. This outfit seems to be eager to support the entertainment industry’s cause.
Tech firms that strongly oppose the anti-piracy legislation say that the suggested bills violate human rights, but the industry believes that they are simply trying to attract people on their side. The representatives of the MPAA agree that the anti-piracy legislation has to overcome many obstacles. However, the industry also proposed a solution that some companies, including Google, are ready to embrace in order to simply “police” transaction involving pirated content. Meanwhile, the MPAA admits that there are no concrete proposals thus far. The MPAA has also engaged Senator Ron Wyden as the latter threatened to delay the bill, saying that they don’t believe he had the necessary votes to keep his campaign going. In addition, the MPAA claimed that Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State, and the Vice President of the United States Joe Biden favours the legislation, although the Obama Administration is yet to take a position on it.

You can pass all the restrictive laws and it won't do any good; proof of that is by just looking a Countries with Dictatorships and totalitarian government and see their own people get around restrictions even today.
