The SOPA Bill which was initially intended as an anti piracy bill, is now looking like it is becoming less of a threat to become Law. The White House and President Obama spoke out against the bill this past weekend and congress has now officially dropped the bill.
This does not mean that there will not be some type of legislation forthcoming, as the PIPA bill is still being actively pursued in the Senate, in spite of seven senators coming out and dropping their co-sponsorship of the bill.
Companies like GoDaddy have taken a beating over their support of these bills and most people do not want them as it provides companies an easy way to censor the internet without much due process of law or check and balances normally accorded webmasters through the DMCA laws.
