Think About It @rupertmurdoch

The best solution for SOPA is to make everything available. Give people an easy, Internet friendly and cheap way to buy content and they will.

Otherwise, people will simply find what they want via a Twitter link or Google search and consume it for free.

You can’t fight free.

The music industry learned the hard way. The RIAA’s lawsuits and scare tactics only encouraged more innovation of piracy.

But we also saw startups bridge the gap. Spotify is a music service that feels free and pays the copyright owners. Ironically, it started with unlicensed content.

Spotify never would have happened if SOPA passed today. The US government would’ve smashed it.

Aren’t you glad we spoke up?  Results.
