Educational Publishers Appear to be Supporting SOPA

Phil Hill, Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment, Dec 24, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Not surprisingly, educational publishers are supporting onerous and unpopular copyright legislation in the United States. "While no one should be surprised that education publishers support SOPA, as the bill is designed to protect content and media companies, I suspect that this support will come back to haunt these supporters. There is a strong backlash growing against SOPA, and if it is enacted as law, this backlash will grow exponentially." Companies listed as being in support of the bill include Pearson Education, Cengage Learning, McGraw-Hill Education, Macmillan, Scholastic, and others.
