The recent internet fear mongering behind SOPA in my opinion was actually justified when it almost became passed as a bill...but then it was postponed. But it seems that some of the biggest video game companies are actually removing their support for the problematic bill. Nintendo, Sony and Electronic Arts have withdrawn their support for the misaligned bill. Although they have backed away from SOPA they are still supporting it through the Entertainment Software Association which is a detail that many of the reports lately have seemed to pass over.
The ESA is a lobbying organization that operates on behalf of big software companies, and EA, Sony and Nintendo are all among their supporters. So while the companies have withdrawn their public support for SOPA, they're still supporting the act through their resident lobbyists; this action allows them to keep pushing the bill without having their names dragged through the mud.
SOPA is creating intense debates all across the web and a number of companies have withdrawn their support in light of customer actions. The bill is still under consideration by the United States Congress, but an official vote has been postponed until early 2012.
