EU doesn't like SOPA either

Neelie Kroes, the EU's Commissioner for the Digital Agenda, tweeted Friday "Glad tide is turning on SOPA: don't need bad legislation when should be safeguarding benefits of open net." Outrage over SOPA earlier this week triggered a one-day blackout by Wikipedia's English-language service and sparked growing protest.
The EU is struggling to tackle online piracy - but without restricting Internet freedom. Kroes favours a less invasive approach, tweeting "Speeding is illegal too: but you don't put speed bumps on the motorway."
