Up until now, opposition to copyright-focused legislation has tended to be single-issue – SOPA, ACTA, DEA and other acronyms – even if many of the campaigners are the same sites and people. Now they’re aiming to coalesce into more of a movement under the banner of the Internet Defense League (slogan: “Make sure the internet never loses. Ever.”) It’s aiming to get its cat logo onto as many websites as possible, with early members including Mozilla, WordPress, Reddit, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and TorrentFreak. The downside: this reinforces the idea of copyright legislation as a battle to be won or lost, rather than a negotiation and/or collaboration – a notion the entertainment industry is equally guilty of fostering.
