Some may think this goes too far and others may think it does not go far enough. Regardless, it exists. The Boycott SOPA app in the Android Market, coupled with the Barcode Scanner app, allows any Android phone to identify if a product is linked to a company supporting SOPA. The app uses the barcode scanner to find out what product you are looking at, and then checks it against a list of companies and bands. The list can be viewed on the developer’s website and includes not only SOPA supporting companies, but companies strongly affiliated with those that do. There are currently 879 entries on the list, which will grow and diminish as companies change their stance on SOPA.
