The Jimquisition Tackles SOPA

The latest episode of The Jimquisition on The Escapist tackles Sony, EA and Nintendo's involvement in SOPA and Protect IP – two bills that propose doing horrible things in the name of protecting intellectual property rights, fighting piracy and killing the illicit counterfeit goods markets on the Internet.

Here's the lead in from irrepressible Destructoid editor Jim Sterling – or his The Escapist handlers (we're not sure which):

"The Stop Online Piracy Act may sound innocuous, but it's a nasty little proposition that gives corporations uncontested rights to control what you enjoy on the Internet. Naturally, being a horrible thing, EA can't wait to climb aboard, along with a number of other publishers. The Internet shouldn't be censored by cowardly companies who are afraid of it, and The Jimquisition urges you take note of what these organizations want to do."

    Jim Sterling: Loundmouthed critic-cum-comedian who unapologetically ticks as many people off as he entertains.

    I suspect he's channeling Lewis Black's spirit.

    Well they left out a C, meaning this is the Corporations Shit On People Act.

    I really hope if this passes a plumbing company, since companies are people now, has Nintendo shut down their website for portraying a plumber.
