How to suck at your religion:  

“Any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.”
-- Douglas Adams, THHGTTG.

The White House response to SOPA/PIPA is better than we might have expected, and not as good as I'd want.

It limits SOPA/PIPA to non-US sites and asks for "due process." (The fact that we even have to ask about due process shows just how un-American SOPA/PIPA is.) It implies that the legislation should only affect those "criminals" who "make money" through filesharing, although any site that enables filesharing and runs ads might thereby count. It rules out modifying the DNS. It wants transparency when the Engines of Refusal are brought to bear on offending foreign sites. Those are important limitations on the proposed bills.

What's missing is any recognition that copyright is out of whack, that there are huge cultural and economic benefits to enabling the free flow of creative works even when it inevitably also results in some losses to copyright holders, any fact-based consideration of what the actual losses are to the content cartel (as +Tim O'Reilly points out), and that applying SOPA to foreign sites leaves us without a leg to stand on when we demand that other countries stop filtering foreign sites.

So, it is not a dreamily perfect response. It is more balanced than I am. Still, it may help to put stakes through SOPA and PIPA's vampire hearts.
