News from the Goolag: Unions don’t go for Geist et al singing Google songbook redux

September 30, 2010

Organized labor released a public statement about the Leahy/Hatch bill and the shrill opposition to it from the Google amen chorus:

“We respect the rights of business and interest groups to raise thoughtful questions for open discussion and debate, but we must speak up when such groups organize campaigns dedicated to paralyzing the legislative process with half-truths and absurd misrepresentations of civic rights”

See LA Times “Hollywood labor unions declare support for online piracy bill

So attention, artists: If you suddenly get a call from one of your representatives asking for you to oppose this legislation, ask them to explain how the bill cuts off advertising sales on pirate websites. And whether they think this loss of advertising revenue might–just might–having something to do with Google’s staunch opposition.
