Pointless. SOPA has already been dropped from the Senate voting agenda and the White House has promised a Veto.
Senate to delay SOPA vote
please refer to SOPA/PIPA always.
sopa was a smokescreen for pipa, pipa is still on and is just as bad
This is an old trick. Please spread the word and call them out repeatedly.
1: Make crazy offer (SOPA) 2: Client rejects crazy offer (us) 3: Make a "reasonable" offer (PIPA) 4: Client accepts offer because it seems reasonable compared to crazy offer.
Don't let up.
misinformed morons like commenter above is why politicians get away with shit like this
This misinformed moron has a BA in Political Science and understands that in order to be a law, an identical bill must pass thru both the House and the Senate. PIPA is what they are calling the House Version and SOPA is what they call the Senate version. If the Senate doesn't even consider SOPA then the House could pass PIPA and the Easterbunny for good measure and it wouldn't mean a damn thing.
Should make a difference.
I'm not kidding. The site I found was real. Lots of sites are going down, probably including this one.
Click above to see what I mean. And sign up for the newsletter and to have your site blacked out to protest the bill.
wow im impressed lmao
A few days ago the news broke that the pending Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) was put on hold until consensus was reached.
Although the announcement was rather vague, some news sites and blogs declared SOPA dead, or “shelved,” or erased from history.
Wishful thinking, because today SOPA is back in full force.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith just announced that the SOPA markup is expected to continue next month.
“To enact legislation that protects consumers, businesses and jobs from foreign thieves who steal America’s intellectual property, we will continue to bring together industry representatives and Members to find ways to combat online piracy,” Chairman Smith said.
“Due to the Republican and Democratic retreats taking place over the next two weeks, markup of the Stop Online Piracy Act is expected to resume in February.
“I am committed to continuing to work with my colleagues in the House and Senate to send a bipartisan bill to the White House that saves American jobs and protects intellectual property.”
What happens next?
In terms of Protect IP, the Senate Judiciary committee has approved it and it's waiting for a floor vote that has been scheduled for January 24. One hurdle: Sen. Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, has placed a hold on the bill.During a two-day debate in the House Judiciary committee in mid-December, it became clear that SOPA supporters have a commanding majority on the committee. They're expected to approve it when Congress returns in 2012.Where it goes from there is an open question that depends on where the House Republican leadership stands. Because the House's floor schedule is under the control of the majority party, the decision will largely lie in the hands of House Speaker John Boehner and his lieutenants.Another possibility is that there could be further House hearings on the security-related implications of SOPA, a move that would delay a final vote. An aide to House Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith previously told CNET that there's no indication yet as to any further hearings, but after the committee debate in December, don't be surprised if it happens.
