Updated, Wednesday, 6:30 pm PCT: We’ve heard from a lot more music companies and organizations that are opposed to SOPA since this post; more here.
Here’s a list of music companies that have taken public positions supporting SOPA. That support frequently takes the form of open letters to various Congressional members or the media, a list tracked by non-profit Washington watchdog MapLight.org. Among other things, MapLight tracks Congressional influence and contributions across a wide range of sectors and bills.
If you know of other music-specific groups publicly supporting or opposing SOPA that are not on this list, please let us know. And thanks to proptone.com for the tip!
