Reposting a great blog post from Shreve Stockton, photographer and blogger at The Daily Coyote:
The Daily Coyote as we know it would not exist if SOPA had been in effect five years ago. The Daily Coyote book, which so many of you have loved, would never have been written under SOPA.
What do I mean? How can I make these declarations? Easy. Because I still so vividly remember those strange days in late 2007 when my blog went from obscurity to its opposite overnight. Dooce linked to The Daily Coyote with one picture and a blurb. Then Reddit, Digg, Notcot, and more. My editor-to-be at Simon & Schuster heard about The Daily Coyote at a dinner party in New York
and emailed me the next day with a book offer.
This would not happen under SOPA. This would be illegal under SOPA.
