SOPA and PIPA have effectually died; enough of the support has withdrawn that they can't succeed.
Also, firefox 10 beta seems to have an irritating glitch which is causing two cursors to appear in my textbox  >:(

Maybe died for now, but eventually, this issue will pop up again in the future. I'm sure the entertainment industry won't give up without a fight. ;)

Annoyingly so, yes.

They'll definitely try some stupid half-baked (or unbaked) plan again in the future; its far more likely than the feds deciding to dump the money-siphoning MAFIAA by the side of the road or the MAFIAA growing a brain.

Lol, I was just bringing up the subject.
SOPA and PIPA may be dead, but there are still things like ACTA, which 1) is international and 2) has been signed by the US and several other countries. It's just a matter of enforcing the provisions set forth in ACTA.

Discussion on Reddit:
Internet, listen up. ACTA is scarier than both PIPA and SOPA, and it will be signed soon. Do your part

It's funny, I always thought of ACTA as something we couldn't do anything about, it being a secret agreement and all. But we did something about SOPA didn't we? But I still don't know what can be done about ACTA.
