VC4Africa goes down in support of stopping #SOPA and #PIPA

As Obama said in his statement, ‘The Obama administration will not support legislation that reduces freedom of expression, increases cybersecurity risk, or undermines the dynamic, innovative global Internet.” Much of the innovation we support at VC4Africa depends on an open and accessible Internet. The Harvard Business Review explains, ‘So if “content” vs “technology” doesn’t capture what’s going on in this fight, what does? Well, SOPA makes much more sense if you look at the debate as big companies unwilling to accept change versus the innovative companies and startups that embrace change. And if we accept that startups are created to find new ways to create value for consumers, the debate is actually between the financial interests of “big content” shareholders versus consumer interests at large.’ It is in this line of thinking VC4Africa joins the protest to end piracy, not liberty!
