The drumbeat of heavy-hitting internet companies that have come out against SOPA and PIPA continues to pound. Facebook founder and amateur butcher Mark Zuckerberg just came out against the bill, with a post on Facebook.
Zuck notes that the company is against SOPA and PIPA in no uncertain terms. The post also links to Facebook’s SOPA/PIPA position page, where it lays out its problems with the bills and offers ways to get involved. The position page has been up for some time, without much notice. But now that Zuckerberg is being vocal about it, expect to see both all up in your blue today.
It turns out it’s kind of a popular post, too, garnering more than 57,000 likes in seven minutes. If anything, it’s a little surprising that it took so long; if SOPA/PIPA were to pass, it would be a huge inconvenience — and expense — for Facebook to comply. So more like this, please, Facebook. And louder. [Mark Zuckerberg]
