    That won't work.

    Anyways, it seems SOPA is losing quite a to of support from companies.

    Hopefully SOPA will go down in flames like it deserves.

    If that's actually the case, and it's not a bunch of kissing arse, then it's because the companies realized finally that they could find themselves on the wrong end of the gun barrel as well.

    From what I've read it's more that the companies own employees refused to support it so they had to back down.

    Well, that would do it too...good for them. I haven't kept up with who is on what side, outside of the obvious players. I've spent most of my time studying the actual bill and all the circumstances that could come up and all the not so thought of uses for it. This is one of the more dangerous bills I've seen come through in some time.
