Congressmen Drop Support for SOPA

And... we're back!

Under Cover Waitress, along with countless other websites, went dark today (1/18/2012) from 8 AM to 8 PM in protest of the Internet Piracy Acts.

According to the New York Times, support for this bill has waned. Co-sponsors of the bill withdrew support over the course of Wednesday.

According to Truthout, PIPA will still be considered by the Senate next week. There is still a long battle ahead, but those of us who oppose government censorship of the flow of information on the Internet have made a dent, thanks to the likes of Wikepedia and Reddit, to name two.

Perhaps a battle was won today, but there is a long war over censorship that is yet to be fought.

    For the moment, anyway....
