Did the websites going dark have an effect?
Apparently, Hollywood is quite unhappy with President Obama's decision to threaten a veto on SOPA.
Internet sites on their SOPA-Strike may be conducting a blackout but Hollywood studios are conducting a boycott. I’ve learned that Hollywood studio chiefs individually and as a group are drawing a line in the sand on the piracy issue with the Obama re-election campaign and refusing to give any more donations.
Obama has donors on both sides of the issue - big donors.
And he can't vote present.
