Wil Wheaton blogged today about the MPAA directly threatening those politicians who came out against SOPA:

"
Reinforcing the fact that Chris Dodd really does not get what’s happening, and showing just how disgustingly corrupt the MPAA relationship is with politicians, Chris Dodd went on Fox News to explicitly threaten politicians who accept MPAA campaign donations that they’d better pass Hollywood’s favorite legislation… or else:
“Those who count on quote ‘Hollywood’ for support need to understand that this industry is watching very carefully who’s going to stand up for them when their job is at stake. Don’t ask me to write a check for you when you think your job is at risk and then don’t pay any attention to me when my job is at stake,”
It shows, yet again, that he just doesn’t get it. People were protesting not just because of the content of these bills, but because of the corrupt process of big industries like Dodd’s “buying” politicians and “buying” laws. To then come out and make that threat explicit isn’t a way to fix things or win back the public. It’s just going to get them more upset, and to recognize just how corrupt this process is."

And since there have been several posts about the Black March boycott and the SOPA Boycott, we've pulled all the info and the links into a public Google doc so you can link to only one post (and also link to it off LJ - the "Repost it to your journal" button only works on LJ.) And I am certain some of us could use a break from the constant reposting. ;-)

The TinyURL link is:

And last here is a great video that explains what the media industry has been trying to do since the creation of audio and video cassette recorders and why they are going to continue trying (like making it illegal to print a copy of a child's drawing to top your kids' birthday cake).
