Since you should know about these things...

Just so you're aware, SOPA isn't just the fight of a few neer-do-wells. Hundreds of notable companies and organizations have come out in support of it and PIPA, including the NCAA, NBA, MLB, NFL, PGA, MLS, UFC, ESPN, Nike, New Era, Adidas and Under Armour. And that's just the sports-related ones.

SOPA is a lot like the BCS. There are good intentions buried deep within but there's so much shady muckity-muck surrounding those good intentions that the bad far outweighs the good.

The good hews is that SOPA got dealt a pretty good blow yesterday but the bill has merely been delayed. And PIPA is still scheduled for a vote in Congress next week.

Learn what you need to know about SOPA and PIPA here and I'm sure the SU iSchool will be following things very closely.

Now stop making that "what's the big deal about that Italian soap, anyway?" joke...cause I already make it.
