SOPA boycott

22 Dec, 2011

paul-graham-SOPAGraham announces on Hacker News that companies that support the Stop Online Piracy Act will not be invited to Y Combinator’s Demo Day:

If these companies are so clueless about technology that they think SOPA is a good idea, how could they be good investors?

It’s not clear exactly which companies with venture capital arms have supported SOPA. Comcast/NBCUniversal’s Comcast Ventures has a stake in Y Combinator company CarWoo, and listed companies like CBS Disney, GoDaddy, News Corp., Sony, Time-Warner, and Visa have made tech investments in the past.
