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!

… but wait a second. Wasn’t W.W. Norton on the list of SOPA supporters? Yeah, they were (that’s from Creative America, an industry site set up specifically to support SOPA, by the way). Perhaps the wrong people to make the argument about privacy and protecting consumer rights in terms of online content?

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.

joshsternberg:

Tumblr’s communicating to its users. Whether it’s activism like this or protectionism against Missing E, seeing these popups is intriguing…

Really dig that Tumblr is giving its users the option to black out, rather than just doing it for them.

Looks like Fark is going a different route with this whole SOPA thing, according to founder Drew Curtis. All will reportedly be revealed at 8:00 a.m. ET.

EDIT: The reasoning for the joke? “While a bunch of other sites are going ‘dark’ to protest SOPA/PIPA, we’re over the moon about the whole thing. Why? Honestly, we’ve been bringing you the latest news happening across the internet for 12 years, and we’re tired. And SOPA/PIPA is the perfect excuse to quit.” Drew Curtis needs a vacation.
