When SOPA-PIPA blew up, it was a transformative event. There were eight million e-mails [to elected representatives] in two days. People were dropping their names as co-sponsors within minutes, not hours.
MPAA CEO Chris Dodd • Discussing the aftermath of the death of SOPA/PIPA during a speech at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on Tuesday night. While the former Democratic senator didn’t seem thrilled to discuss the topic, attendees seemed unwilling to let Dodd avoid the subject. Eventually, Dodd did say he felt that portrayals of the bills’ reach was “over the top”, but also said, in no uncertain terms, that they would not return in the future. “These bills are dead, they’re not coming back,” said Dodd, adding, “And they shouldn’t. I think we’re better served by sitting down [with the tech sector and SOPA opponents] and seeing what we agree on.”  source

PACs are commonplace for companies that lead a big, growing market and Netflix is no exception. Our PAC is a way for our employees to support candidates that understand our business and technology. It was not set up for the purpose of supporting SOPA or PIPA.
Anonymous Netflix spokesperson • In a statement emailed to TPM, responding to the news that “hacktivist”-group Anonymous is calling for a boycott of the company after it announced it would be creating it’s own political action committee. According to the spokesperson, FLIXPAC was not created in order to support or rebuild SOPA/PIPA, but instead to allow the company to influence debates on “network neutrality, bandwidth caps, usage based billing and reforming the Video Privacy Protection Act.” He also called Anonymous’ claims baseless, saying, “SOPA/PIPA are dead anyway.” source (viafollow)

Hopefully that was a one-time experience that came from a lot of different things coming together where a lot of different people came to the conclusion that this was a terrible piece of legislation.
RIAA head Cary Sherman • Discussing the experience of SOPA and his hopes that the mass online protests won’t repeat. Yeah, internet, we should prove him wrong — by, for example, spreading this quote!

So, there’s this petition targeting MPAA head Chris Dodd. Here’s the context. Here’s a quote from Dodd:

"Those who count on quote ‘Hollywood’ for support need to understand that this industry is watching very carefully who’s going to stand up for them when their job is at stake. Don’t ask me to write a check for you when you think your job is at risk and then don’t pay any attention to me when my job is at stake," Dodd said on Fox News on Thursday.

Do with it what you will.

There is no reason that the legitimate issues raised by many about this bill cannot be resolved.
Sen. Harry Reid • Discussing his decision to effectively shelve PIPA for now, while the Senate works through its issues with the legislation. The bill isn’t dead, though, just getting reworked. Reid hopes that Sen. Patrick Leahy, the guy behind the bill, will do his best ”to forge a balance between protecting Americans’ intellectual property, and maintaining openness and innovation on the Internet.” The bill was supposed to face a vote Tuesday, but no longer. It might show up later, though.
