Great news! The two bills mentioned in my recent blog designed to regulate the Internet have been pulled out of consideration in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. I refer specifically to HR 3261, the Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA) and Senate Bill S 968, the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA).
This is directly due to the loss of support the proposed bills suffered as a direct result of the public outcry made by people like you. I know that many of you had been working on defeating this legislation long before I wrote my article and want to say congratulations to all of you for a strong effort that paid off. This proves that in this election year we can have an impact by continuing to contact our representatives and senators.
The fight is far from over because it is likely that the liberals will try to introduce this type of legislation again in a different form and it is also likely that Obama may try to bypass Congress by having the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) illegally implement similar restrictions on freedom by agency action. We must stay vigilant and I will keep you informed through my blog and radio show.
By the way, you can now listen to my radio show on your Smart phone. You find out how at this link http://www.radiosandysprings.com/index.php?id=1
