Exclusive: SOPA and PiPA DROPPED By CONGRESS Due to The large Number of Protest!!

Congress and the Hollywood/media lobby was taken aback by this week’s massive anti-SOPA protest.
We receive an exclusive email stating that the Censorship plan (SOPA and PIPA) has been cancelled by Congress today due to the large number of Internet protest that took place on January 18, 2011.– the votes we’ve been scrambling to mobilize against have been finally cancelled.
13 million people including myself took the time to tell Congress to protect free speech rights on the internet. Hundreds of millions, maybe a billion, people all around the world saw what happened on Wednesday and decided to join in the fight.  Here are numbers of people you voted.

See what Fight for the Future had to say below:

We ran the largest organizing sites for the recent SOPA protests (sopastrike.com and americancensorship.org), applauds the announcement that the Senate and House have postponed action on the proposed web censorship bills.

“We sent the MPAA back to the drawing board,” said Fight for the Future Co-founder Holmes Wilson, “But any law that lets the copyright lobby block our websites, censor our search results, or cut off our Paypal accounts–without even going through a judge–will be soundly defeated.”
“This was the largest online protest in history,” said Fight for the Future Co-founder Tiffiniy Cheng, “The MPAA was trying to quietly force this bill through Congress, but when internet users started paying attention, real democracy happened.  This is a watershed moment in the fight against lobbyists’ influence on politics.”

“The MPAA could have proposed a law to address copyright infringement,” said Holmes Wilson, “Instead, they proposed giving rightsholders veto power over online innovation and free expression. At that point, it was just a matter of getting the public involved.”
