UPDATE: SOPA legislation being shelved by the bill’s sponsor.

Here at PLUS blog we’re big fans of sharing content from elsewhere on the internet – in fact the entire Fall Through the Cracks Friday feature is built on the ability to share interesting, quirky, or just plain odd content created by others.

The proposed SOPA legislation (H.R. 3261) could make that simple act – sharing content – more difficult. For this week’s #FTTCF we wanted to share an excellent video from our friends at TED. In it, Clay Shirky discusses why he believes SOPA is a bad idea.
