Illustration for article titled Capcom Says It Never Said It Supported SOPA, Wont Say It Doesnt Support SOPA, Either

Earlier this week, according to Digital Trends, a Capcom spokesperson was asked for the company's position on the Stop Online Piracy Act. "The ESA represents us on these matters," was the reply. The ESA supports SOPA. Applying the transitive property, that means Capcom supports SOPA.

Not so, says Christian Svensson, who blamed "bad journalism" for the inference that the publisher supports SOPA. "We've only ever stated that the ESA represents us in legislative matters (again, like every other publisher). We have not stated any stance on our support (or not) for SOPA. Inferring more than that is bad journalism."


Fine, then. Hiding behind your lobbyist, and pretending to state a position on an issue of extreme interest to your customers, when asked a direct question by a legitimate news agency, is a "cop-out."
