Q
Heard from an unreliable source that SOPA "is dead". Can anyone confirm it?

Personally I don't believe it because SOPA hasn't even been voted on yet, has it?

May be worth a try. Can't think of any films or albums coming out between here and March that I wanna see, anyways, so I may have done this unintentionally anyways.

I hope it stays dead forever. I can't believe people where saying that it would still pass since they don't care what we think and that we are just no faces to them  ::).

I know.  You seldom see public statements with such vigorous support.  Hopefully that means the petition was a success?

Some people say that the bill could come back since that certain parties will keep trying to get passed until they do and if they don't they still keep trying to get them passed.

Twitter is alive with the news that SOPA is dead.

The bill has apparently been pulled.

EDIT: By eck! I should have read the last page.

I wouldn't lower my guard just yet.

Also, let's not let our 'winning high' (If we really did 'win') let us forget about ACTA.

Not sure if this requires its own thread.

Last time I checked OPEN is nowhere near as horrible  as the previous bills but still pretty f**ked.

OPEN would give oversight to the International Trade Commission (ITC) instead of the Justice Department, focuses on foreign-based websites, includes an appeals process, and would apply only to websites that "willfully" promote copyright violation.
Depending on how well this is defined, I would totally support OPEN.
