The United States House of Representatives released a PDF (http://judiciary.house.gov/issues/Rouge%20Websites/SOPA%20Supporters.pdf) that lists the US Based companies that support the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) Act, H.R. 3261.  Although many content companies are included, some such as Pfizer, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, and several law firms, including one of my favorites who are excellent in the area of Privacy.  Check it out if you have a moment.

In related news, the house has adjourned any further review and discussion of potential mark-ups until next session.  Although it’s a pretty tough read (IMHO), the full text is at http://judiciary.house.gov/hearings/pdf/112%20HR%203261.pdf.  Don’t be put off by the 74 pages – it’s like when we were back in grammar school and we had to do double space and 2 inch margins on each page.  The meat of the document is fairly limited and readable.
