White House Appears To Reject SOPA Legislation

Or at least parts of it. In my inbox this morning via POLITICO:
Obama administration officials said in a blog post today that they would "not support legislation that reduces freedom of expression, increases cybersecurity risk, or undermines the dynamic, innovative global Internet." The White House did not take a definite position on SOPA and the PROTECT IP Act, but said "the DNS filtering provisions in some proposed legislation suggests that they pose a real risk to cybersecurity and yet leave contraband goods and services accessible online." The officials said, however, that legislation is needed to combat online piracy.
