In case the flood of information from yesterday’s Internet Blackout didn’t sufficiently clarify and explain the potential impacts of PIPA and SOPA on the web as we know it, check out this video. Even though SOPA appears to have successfully been killed with 121 representatives opposed or leaning no and only 27 supporters remaining (as of the time of this post), there is still a great concern around PIPA, which retains the support of 37 senators with opposition expressed by only 27.
While we can all take a collective breath as more senators come out against PIPA following yesterday’s barrage of public opinion, but the battle isn’t over. The PIPA vote is scheduled for January 24th and it is crucial that we continue to make our voices heard and protect our Internet.
