Microsoft says it does not support the SOPA 'as currently drafted'
Microsoft might not be so firm in what it is saying. The computer software giant has just said that it does not support the SOPA in its current form. It cites that while it does, too, want to get rid of piracy, it believes that it needs a constructive way to do it. The bill is set to voted on in February, the the PIPA vote just ~2 weeks away. I have my fingers crossed that this does not get passed. There is a long range of consequences for this bill, and critics are saying that this bill is not the way to fix it.
