suraj.sun (1348507) writes "Christopher Dodd, the former Connecticut senator who now leads the MPAA, hasn't given up on his dream of censoring the Internet(http://yro.slashdot.org/story/12/03/01/2235222/riaa-ceo-hopes-sopa-protests-were-a-one-time-thing). In an interview with Hollywood Reporter(http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/mpaa-christopher-dodd-sopa-bully-harvey-weinstein-ratings-308359), he said that Hollywood and the technology industry "need to come to an understanding" about new copyright legislation.

Dodd said(http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2012/04/slow-learner-mpaa-chief-hints-at-talks-to-revive-sopa.ars) that there were "conversations going on now," about SOPA-style legislation, but that he was "not going to go into more detail because obviously if I do, it becomes counterproductive." Asked whether the White House's decision(http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2012/01/obama-administration-joins-the-ranks-of-sopa-skeptics.ars) to oppose SOPA had created tensions with Hollywood, Dodd insisted that he was "not going to revisit the events of last winter," but said he hoped the president would use his "good relationships" with both Hollywood and the technology industry to broker a deal."
