MPAA Head Chris Dodd Calls for Meeting Between Hollywood, Tech Giants to Reach SOPA Compromise
He calls the White House “the perfect place" to hammer out a deal to save the anti-piracy legislation.
NEW YORK - MPAA head Chris Dodd would welcome a summit meeting between Internet companies and content companies, maybe convened by the White House, to look for a compromise on the much-discussed anti-piracy bill known as the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA.
“The perfect place to do it is a block away from here,” Dodd told the New York Times, pointing from his office in Washington to the nearby White House, the paper said.
A Senate vote on Tuesday will show whether opponents have succeeded in derailing that chamber’s version of the anti-piracy legislation, the Times said.
Meanwhile, the New York Post reported that the MPAA and its member studios are preparing a $3 million print and online advertising campaign to hit back at opponents of the much-discussed Internet anti-piracy bill. But a spokesman for the MPAA said the report was not accurate.
