SOPA and PIPA on Hold

SOPA and PIPA have been put on hold due to the massive protests on the web and in cities.

Protect IP was originally scheduled for January 24 but has been pushed back. The uprising has grown greatly since Wednesday. Popular sites like Wikipedia and Reddit blacked out their websites for the day to protest against SOPA and PIPA.

These two bills are probably not going to pass since the Wednesday protests. This is good to hear but this isn't for sure. These two bills cannot be passed! They will alter how the Internet is used.
