SOPA Blackout: Reddit Co-Founder Discusses BlackoutBy: Mike Tuttle - January 18, 2012
Reddit co-counder Alexis Ohanion dropped by CNN’s newsroom today to discuss his website’s blackout in opposition to SOPA/PIPA.
In the discussion, Ohanion confirmed that all sides agree that piracy is a bad thing and should be stopped. But, the debate is how to go about doing that. Many feel that SOPA/PIPA is using a hatchet to solve a problem best-suited for a scalpel.
Ohanion points out that, had SOPA been enacted in the past, his own website would not exist. He argues that the next Facebook or Twitter would be stifled by this bill.
