    I’m fairly confused about what the National League of Cities is doing in there too, to be honest. They seem to be quite open to platforms for sharing information and creating opportunities between city leaders for networking – what have they got to gain from SOPA?

    You can’t spell ELSEVIER without EVIL!

  3. Why so selective? Boycott ALL the companies there. Plenty of publishing houses (unsurprisingly) on that list…

    I don’t know about the National League of Cities, but some companies (such as Gibson Guitar) have demanded that they are take off the list. Seems that they expressed some generalised support for protection of “intellectual property rights”, and the US Chamber of Commerce then used this to suggest they supported SOPA. See:
