Reddit Founder Talks SOPA on Bloomberg TV

January 6, 2012 -

Earlier this week Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian took a few minutes to talk to Bloomberg TV about the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect IP Act. It's an interesting but short interview that brings to bear the main point that tech innovators opposing this bill have been saying: companies like Reddit who rely on user-generated content - would not have been possible had these laws been in effect.

The choice quote of the interview, as pointed out by BetaBeat, is this one:

"In creating this legislation about something that frankly they don’t understand, Congress is going to obliterate an entire tech industry in the United States as collateral damage."

Truer words have never spoken. Check out the interview to below.
