La Administración de Obama ha emitido una respuesta a los que se oponen a la ley SOPA

La ley SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act – Acta de Cese de la Pirateria Online) ha sido un tema controversial desde que hace unos días el Comité Judicial de los EEUU hizo pública la lista de las empresas que la aprueban. Los opositores de SOPA han enviado montones de peticiones en contra de la ley, por lo que la Administración de Obama ha emitido una respuesta tranquilizadora.

“Aunque creemos que la piratería en Internet por sitios web extranjeros es un problema grave que requiere una respuesta legislativa seria”, dice la nota, “no vamos a apoyar una legislación que reduzca la libertad de expresión, aumente el riesgo de la seguridad cibernética, o atente contra la Internet global y dinámica innovadora.”

Los opositores a la ley SOPA están de acuerdo con esos puntos en concreto, ya que SOPA les huele a censura más a una legislación razonable. Muchas de las exigencias que pueda implicar esta ley podría poner en riesgo cantidad de negocios en línea además de plantear grandes problemas tecnológicos.
