PROTECT IP Vote Postponed

Link, Politics, Technology

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced today that he is postponing Tuesday’s procedural vote on the Protect IP Act (PIPA), the controversial anti-piracy bill that inspired thousands of websites on Wednesday to go dark.

Very happy to hear this news, but this is still only the beginning. SOPA and PROTECT IP aren’t going away, they’re just being put off until Hollywood’s lobbyist can find a more convenient time to push this through.

Make sure your Senators and Representatives know there is no convenient time to break the Internet.
