Advocacy groups are stepping up their efforts to prevent Attorneys General from reviving parts of the Stop Online Piracy Act on a state level. The groups, including the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Free Press, and Engine Advocacy, have written a letter to Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood, who is working with the Motion Picture Association of America to implement parts of SOPA in his state.

“SOPA was a bad idea at the federal level,” the letter says. “And any SOPA revival on a state level is an equally bad idea that, we are confident, will be equally unacceptable to the public.”
