Did SOPA And PIPA Survive Yesterday's Blackout???

| Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikInspirationTech Talk

sopa and pipa blackout results

They may still be alive, but they're MUCH weaker now!

To recap - yesterday, a bunch of websites went dark for the day in protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA).

As the day went on, we were pleased to hear that several senators backed down as supporters of PIPA! We were also happy to hear that more House reps decided to stop supporting SOPA!

Now, we've learned some of the IMPRESSIVE results of yesterday's anti-Internet censorship blackout! Here are some highlights….

- Wikipedia claims over 162 million people saw their anti-SOPA/PIPA message, 12,000+ people commented on it, and over 8 million people used the site's zip code tool to look up their representatives

- Congressional websites were slow to load all day, and some were temporarily shut down due to traffic

- "At least 10 senators and nearly twice that many House members announced their opposition [to SOPA and PIPA]"

- Progress for Change Campaign Committee claims that over 468 websites from PCCC-members were blacked out yesterday

Definitely sounds like we're headed very strongly in the right direction!

As we said before - PIPA and SOPA are going down!!!!!!!!

    It should be noted that there are only two Presidential candidates who are opposed to SOPA…Ron Paul and Barack Obama.

    Perez, you are such a Hypocrite (and coward!) Why do you post this, when you did nothing to help their cause? All those website owners took a hit to their bank accounts to fight for what they believe in, and you stayed online and kept raking in the money. Too bad you couldn't have gone black for a day to help the cause. Of course, you are use to having other people fight your battles for you. You would sell out your fellow gay brothers and sisters just to make a buck.

    It's just a shame that you didn't participate in the blackout.

    Agree with Demode. This site is riddled with so much bs adverts and others that it is almost unable to scroll without overloading the memory of my browser…Anyway…Its just prestaged and is not the same site it was…nothing useful is here and I rarely come on this site now. Anyway..Barrack obama will veto this to try and reach the younger gen and help his standing in the election…seems planned. He still supports NDAA…hes no good!

    We all know that you steal music, so this is aimed at you

    We did a good job yesterday, but this is far from over. We need to keep the pressure on and keep calling and writing to our reps and senators so that this thing doesn't have a snowball's chance of passing.

    It's good that you're keeping this issue at the forefront of people's minds, Perez, but it'd help a millon-fold if you actively reminded people to keep the pressure on until we're 100% certain this thing won't pass.
