Like many people, I was disgusted to find out that the Entertainment Software Association supports the current form of the Stop Online Piracy Act, which was protested yesterday in an unprecedented way with the Internet blackout protests and by the efforts of people calling their Congressional Representatives and Senators. I decided to express my displeasure in an E-mail to the ESA; I present it now without further comment.
“To Whom It May Concern,
I wanted to write an E-mail to express my anger and disgust over your support of the Stop Online Piracy Act in its current form–a form which would have little effect on piracy and leave legitimate website operators liable for piracy links posted by individual users–especially in light of the extent to which gamers around the world responded to your requests for help in the Schwartzenegger/Brown vs. EMA/ESA Supreme Court case.
However, this YouTube video posted by Andrew Eisen expresses my feelings far better than any words I type could: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7aJ59U0Dmg
You are stabbing law-abiding gamers and Internet users in the back after we helped you, and you should be ashamed of yourselves.
