Insane Entitlement: EMI Sues Irish Gov’t For Not Passing SOPA-Like Censorship Law

Insane Entitlement: EMI Sues Irish Gov’t For Not Passing SOPA-Like Censorship Law:

The sense of entitlement exhibited by the legacy players in the entertainment industry is now reaching positively insane levels — highlighted by the news that major record label EMI (in the process of being acquired by Universal Music to make it the largest record label by far) is suing the Irish government because it feels the Irish government is taking too long to pass a SOPA-like law that would require ISPs to censor the internet and block access to sites it doesn’t like. I’m not kidding. Apparently, because the legislative process is too slow, it feels the need to sue.

[Yuck.]
