Washington, DC – Upset about the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s support of certain legislation on Capitol Hill, technology giant Google and the Arlington-based Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) are now considering leaving the organization, the website Daily Kos reported.
A source close to Google told the blog the company is unhappy with the Chambers’ support of legislation that would “impose new liabilities” on the company.
Meanwhile, the CEA – a large trade association that annually produces the popular International Consumer Electronics Show – reportedly is weighing its options following the Chamber’s “aggressive” support of the Online Piracy Act.
