League of Legends Hates SOPA
Posted on Wednesday, January 11 @ 13:57:09 PST by Nicholas Tan
The developers for League of Legends, a popular multiplayer title played on PC, have unsurprisingly come out with an official letter stating their vehement disapproval over the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) currently under consideration in the United States Congress.
They call both SOPA and the Protect IP Act in the Senate, though "preventing piracy of copyrighted content is a laudable goal", as an "misguided attempt to curb the illegal piracy of copyrighted content". It "threatens any website that features user-generated content" and "ad networks, payment providers and internet service providers are now potentially liable for their user's infringement". This will then lead to many "costly legal battles - at a minimum cutting off financial means, and likely shutting off the site entirely":
How would SOPA/PIPA impact League of Legends players?Riot Games strongly opposes SOPA/PIPA. You can write your congressperson with your disapproval too (if you disapprove... as you should... maybe... I'm not endorsing anything... and stuff...).
