The Boston Globe Publishes Editorial in Support of SOPA
The Boston Globe endorsed the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), a controversial measure to crack down on online copyright infringement, in an unsigned editorial last week.
“The Stop Online Piracy Act currently before Congress would finally give law enforcement the tools to crack down on the websites that enable Internet piracy,” the editorial board wrote, saying copyright infringement costs the U.S. economy billions of dollars every year.
The editorial noted that users can find pirated HBO shows on Google or unauthorized music videos on YouTube, and that neither “website faces repercussions.”
