Here what Demand Progress and Associated Press Have to say
Wow. We just won.
From the Associated Press:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he was postponing a test vote set for Tuesday "in light of recent events."
So, in other words, because of all of us. Absolutely amazing.
Demand Progress has been fighting this legislation for more than a year -- having grown from nothing to over one million members during that period.
Even the Motion Picture Association's Chris Dodd is awed by what just happened. Here's what he said yesterday:
“This is altogether a new effect,” Mr. Dodd said, comparing the online movement to the Arab Spring. He could not remember seeing “an effort that was moving with this degree of support change this dramatically” in the last four decades, he added.
So we won the battle agents PIPA and SOPA but not the war. Becuase he will come back with those two evil bills Some time in February or after the elections.
