Good News on SOPA

It’s dead, Jim.

Of course, it was scary to see just how close SOPA–or its sister bill, the Protect IP Act–were to being passed by Congress, but it is reassuring to see just how fervent, organized, and motivated the opposition was to this kind of legislation. I hope that Congress decides that it has better things to do than to consider similar legislation, but in the event that Congress continues to refuse to heed wisdom, representatives and Senators will have to worry about an entirely justified expression of popular anger.
