Bill Killed: SOPA death celebrated as Congress recalls anti-piracy acts

January 21, 2012
A controversial American anti-piracy act was recalled on Friday, which came as no small victory for hacktivists who launched history’s largest attack on several websites – including that of FBI – in protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act.
Those opposing the controversial law have grown jubilant, with many seeing Friday’s news as real victory in a sort of war for online freedom. The vote on the anti-piracy legislation, which was due on January, 24, has been postponed.
The words of House of Representatives Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith – who was the chief sponsor of SOPA – came as a bombshell: he stated that American legislators would delay action on similar proposals until the matter is more widely agreed upon.
“I have heard from the critics, and I take seriously their concerns regarding proposed legislation to address the problem of online piracy,” Smith said. “It is clear that we need to revisit the approach on how best to address the problem of foreign thieves that steal and sell American inventions and products.”
“The Committee will continue work with copyright owners, Internet companies, and financial institutions to develop proposals that combat online piracy and protect America’s intellectual property.”
He said in a statement that the Judiciary Committee welcomes input “from all organizations and individuals who have an honest difference of opinion about how best to address this widespread problem.”
Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said that he decision was taken “in light of recent events.”
