SOPA Internet Censorship bill Dead!....for now.

     You all know that I do NOT support the internet Censorship bills. And I asked you all to sign petitions and let congress know that we the people mean business when we say this Bil must die! Well my friends, we have won. For now anyways. Click the jump to read more.



     According to the Huffington Post, Today, the White House officially responded to 2 online petitions: "Stop the E-Parasite Act" and "Veto the SOPA bill and any other future bills that threaten to diminish the free flow of information,". (I believe you, my subscribers signed one of those petitions....that is why you all rock)
The statement said....

    "While we believe that online piracy by foreign websites is a serious problem that requires a serious legislative response, we will not support legislation that reduces freedom of expression, increases cybersecurity risk, or undermines the dynamic, innovative global Internet,"

      The SOPA Bill had a hearing that was delayed until January 18th. That hearing has now been "postponed for the time being". Efforts are now being focussed on the PIPA Bill, which Senate Majority leader Harry Reid has committed to moving forward in the next two weeks. So we can see that the debate and fight is not over, but we win a victory today against a bill that would try to silence the voice of the people. However, Even though the White House claims to oppose such Bills as PIPA, with the PIPA bill still out there and efforts being made to push it forward in the next couple of weeks; I urge you all to keep fighting the good fight, and keep those letters and phone calls to your congressmen flowing!

      And if a new "online piracy" bill limits the freedom and voice of the people; we will all be here to tell them "Nope, try again."

  1. I don't know whether to scream for joy or bang my head against a wall. It's great that the bill still hasn't passed, but it's still. NOT. DEAD. This is almost like fighting off cancer... or trying to keep a hurricane from hitting land.

    It is great news though! All we need now is to get the media to acknowledge this instead of always talking about the presidential... circus.

  2. I'm honestly on the fence about this. Sure we should have to give up our freedoms but I feel bad over the torrent thing. I wouldn't want people taking my stuff without paying either but if its legal and the only ones that get punished are the up-loaders and not the down-loaders then....I'm a freaking hypocrite on this!

  3. While I'm happy at the thwarting of their attempted silent-passage of SOPA, I'm afraid there's already more coming. Senator Lamar Smith is far from done with his pseudo-campaign on "improving" the Internet. Something new (PCFIPA as it can be shortened to) has already arisen following the failure of SOPA...

  11. To be honest I don't actually think they were going to pass it this time anyway, I think they're just trying to push our buttons. Either way censorship of the internet has already begun, it's just more subtle right now so most people don't even see it.
