Matthew Yglesias the 30 year old US political blogger states in an article published regarding the attempted introduction of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA), that “SOPA isn’t just an overly intrusive way to solve a problem, it’s a “solution” to a problem that’s not a problem.” In the article, Yglesias claims “Much of the debate about SOPA and PIPA has thus far centered around the entertainment industry’s absurdly inflated claims about the economic harm of copyright infringement … the American consumer has never been better-entertained than she is today. The same digital frontier that’s created the piracy pseudo-problem has created whole new companies and made it infinitely easier for small operations to distribute their products. Digital technology has reduced the price we pay for new works and made them cheaper to create… The American economy has plenty of problems, but lack of adequate entertainment options is not on the list.”
