From Gizmodo’s Sam Biddle, a piece headlined: “Apple’s Pro-Censorship Software Alliance Backs Down”:
The Business Software Association, which includes tech giants like
Apple, Microsoft, and Intel, has reversed its stance on the
controversial (and awful!) Stop Online Piracy Act: now it doesn’t
like it. Good.
Is it fair to call the BSA “Apple’s”? No, of course not. But this is what happens when you’re the new sheriff in town. The BSA used to be “Microsoft’s” when it supported something stupid or wrong, now it’s “Apple’s”.
