The support for legislation that cracks down on foreign rogue websites continues to gather momentum. Just last week, the Stop Online Piracy Act (H.R.3261) was introduced in the House of Representatives with bipartisan support.   Meanwhile on the Senate side,  the PROTECT IP Act (S.968) is growing its list of co-sponsors.  The latest: Senators Jeff Bingaman, Sherrod Brown, Tim Johnson, Mary Landrieu, and Robert Menendez.

So far, a broad coalition of thirty-five Senators has given their support to the PROTECT IP Act, which will protect the livelihoods of the 2.2 million American workers from all 50 states whose jobs depend on the film and television industry.
