Chris Dodd went on Fox News to explicitly threaten politicians who accept MPAA campaign donations that they'd better pass Hollywood's favorite legislation. He stated :
Those who count on quote 'Hollywood' for support need to understand that this industry is watching very carefully who's going to stand up for them when their job is at stake. Don't ask me to write a check for you when you think your job is at risk and then don't pay any attention to me when my job is at stake
It seems like the MPAA has publicly admitted that they believe it is ok to trade Dollars for Laws. This is a practice that has been long standing though needs to be overturned as well. SOPA and PIPA are the brain child of such actions.
