SOPA and PIPA are dead. Well maybe not dead, but indefinitely postponed. Over the past few weeks there has been a lot of up rage online over SOPA and PIPA that were being discussed in the Senate and House of Representatives in the US. On January 18th, many websites shut down for a day in protest of SOPA. There were many petitions, and what to do to oppose these two bills. Even with all this opposition, many politicians still wanted to pass both the laws. Finally, both Senator Harry Reid and Representative Lamar Smith both issued statements to say that both PIPA and SOPA are indefinitely postponed.
