Chalk one up for gamers. The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has just announced that it no longer supports the controversial Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) or the Protect IP Act (PIPA).
Here is the ESA's full statement:
This announcement comes right on the heels of both bills taking a heavy blow; with the PIPA vote being postponed, and SOPA being shelved indefinitely. It's certainly interesting timing. However, the ESA still deserves thanks for acknowledging the anit-SOPA/PIPA sentiments of gamers and industry members alike, and adapting to better represent those sentiments.
Better late than never?
