Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit, says the Stop Online Piracy Act, known as SOPA, will have a huge negative impact on future innovations in the online space:
"The idea of simply complying from a legal standpoint is enough to get something shut down before it even gets started. And that means the next YouTube, the next Twitter, the next Reddit, the next Facebook just doesn’t happen here."
Ohanian, along with Ryan Singel, editor of Threat Level — Wired magazine’s privacy and security blog, discussed the latest development around SOPA on The Takeaway this morning.
