Media Companies Outspend Tech Giants in Fight Over SOPA

The tech industry has been paying quite a bit of attention to the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), a bill wending its way through the U.S. Congress that would allow media companies to pursue legal remedies against online search engines and social networks that link to sites with pirated content.

Just about every major tech company in the Valley has come out in opposition to the bill. But it turns out that the likes of Google and Facebook — while most definitely not short on cash — have less skin in the game on SOPA than legacy media companies such as Disney, Sony, and Comcast.
