Tim O'Reilly on the SOPA case

Just a quick post to share a statement made by Tim O'Reilly about Washington's response to the SOPA act. I found it really interesting because he acknowledges piracy, but actually states that piracy losses are outweighed by the benefits of free flow of information and knowledge sharing that ends up bringing more sales to the company. It also comments on the historic fact that United States publishing industry began by actually pirating British and European works ! 

Enjoy !
