US legislators are urged to drop SOPA

Closer to home, Loz Kaye, the leader of the UK Pirate Party, warned that SOPA would not only affect the internet as Americans know it, but the internet as a whole.

"SOPA is an attack on the very heart of how the Internet functions. Such sweeping draconian legislation threatens any kind of share-content site on the web. It should give sponsors of the bill pause for thought that even such major companies as Google, Yahoo and Facebook have been vocal in their opposition," he said in a statement to the INQUIRER.

Andrew Robinson, Pirate Party UK Culture & Media spokesperson commented on TPP:

"TPP is an attempt to impose a copyright maximalist agenda on its signatories, currently countries like the US, Canada and Australia, but as is the way with these negotations, it will be seen as a model for future worldwide implementation."
