One small victory for the internet and free speech in general! SOPA is shelved and unlikely to resurface any time soon (i.e. not before the Presidential elections are over)
Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Threat in the form of Protect IP Act still exists but following yesterday even that has less of a chance to suceed.
SO awesome!

(And probably the rest of the manes to.)

Honestly though. If it weren't for Equestria Daily I probably never would have heard these good news. I really suck at following news...

I think SOPA needs to go curl up in a corner and die.
With all the entire-site protests occuring on 90% of the Internet people go on, it seems pretty unlikely this bill will have enough public support to pass.

I'm basically pushing these items everywhere right now. You can help by doing the same.

They urge us to download the video and re-upload it.

And the link to the most important petition you'll EVER sign.
THIS LINK RIGHT HERE!

let's all work together and unite all under one roof!

At least 9 representatives have pulled their support. AWESOME!

Hey, look, an excuse / motivation for more young people to vote in the upcoming elections. Good job, guys.

This is going to be brought up in enough smear campaigns, I betcha... xD
