I hope that this intent is stuck to, by the concerned. ESA's annual shindig, it's gaudy celebration, deserves snubbing if they're going to continue to support (and cause by association, its members to support) such thoroughly destructive land-grabbing, as much as it concerns unharmful, and well-intended media ventures that aim to inform and entertain. For instance, Giantbomb, it's doa as soon as this thing gets through.
A lot of game sites are announcing that they will not cover E3 unless the ESA pull out of supporting SOPA. Is EG planning a similar stance?
I agree with the Wikipedia position that where something will come about, that goes entirely against what their organisation was intended for, and founded to assure, then they should not sit on their hands, and they would be mistaken to do so. They've taken a peaceful protest to raise awareness, and state their case, that in no way impedes their 24/7 role, or the likelihood of bias to enter it - for the BBC reporter to suggest that, was just dubious baiting.
