32 Music Companies Have Publicly Supported SOPA. And 2 Have Opposed It…

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!
