SOPA is just on a temporary hiatus. If it doesn't come back sooner, it will certainly do so after the next presidential election.

Yes, no way they will not stop until had the power to control All!
And the hacker muslin attacks on Israel will only make them use another cheap lie, that internet as it is is a threaten to security!
Goodbye free World, dark ages are coming upon All!

If the Senate passes PIPA, it won't go anywhere without a companion bill in the House.

But it'd be better to shoot them down both; it'd make it more difficult for the enemies of free speech to mount a new assault in the near term.

We won't sit idly by while politicians turn the premier global forum for the exchange of ideas into another point-source broadcast medium controlled by corporate gatekeepers.

Seriously, folks, Tim Wu predicted this very struggle in his The Master Switch. Wu is on Obama's FCC now, so we can hope he's a loud voice in the President's ear about why these bills are so dangerous.

They could lead to the very consolidation and control of communications that happened in US telephony, radio, broadcast TV, and cable. Each of them had a "wild frontier era" too.

But.. but... but...

Darth Murdoch, that shining beacon for the rights of the common man's privacy in the UK, has stood up and called all those SOPA-haters in the rebel Alliance 'pirates and hackers led by pirate hosting company Google'...

So.. shouldn't we all be getting behind this thing?

;)

(Ok, so when Darth Vader phones up Dr. Evil and says 'you're worse than me', it can get distracting... and maybe that's the real ploy here, a last ditch effort to throw mud in our eyes.)

New World Notes isn't blocked in protest?

There's always tomorrow to reflect.
