NCompass Live: SOPA and PIPA: What Libraries Need to Know - Recorded Online Session 


Have you heard of SOPA? How about PIPA? SOPA is the Stop Online Piracy Act and PIPA is the Protect IP Act. Both were bills attempting to fight copyright infringement and online piracy, and both have been postponed. But that doesn’t mean they’re gone for good. Brandon Butler, from the Library Copyright Alliance and Director of Public Policy Initiatives, Association of Research Libraries, will tell us what SOPA and PIPA are, how they came about, what's next now that they’ve both been shelved, and how all of this affects libraries.
