Internet & Networking Big news from Capitol Hill in Washington DC today: House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa has said that the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) has been "shelved" in the House of Representatives, meaning it has been put on indefinite hold until a consensus about the act can be reached. Sadly, SOPA's counterpart in the Senate, the Protect IP Act (PIPA) will still be pushed forward, meaning we must remain vigilant. Despite all of this, Wikipedia has announced it will join the blackout coming Wednesday.

Even the BBC agreed with several OSNEWS member opinions.

"The stance is likely to anger many companies who have publicly supported Sopa.

I am sure you will down play it but I don't think it is coincidence that once that statement came out , shortly after SOPA died.

The BBC is very Neo Liberal.
If you said even Foxnews agreed with Thom, wow yes.. but the BBC?
