An official statement from the White House was published yesterday and it appears that the White House will NOT be supporting the Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Act :

“While we believe that online piracy by foreign websites is a serious problem that requires a serious legislative response, we will not support legislation that reduces freedom of expression, increases cybersecurity risk, or undermines the dynamic, innovative global Internet.”

This comment was left in response to two petitions against these acts.
