After Massive Protests, Congressman Plan to Ditch SOPA / PIPA Bill

Several massive websites around the web have gone black in protest of the SOPA/PIPA bill. If this bill is passed, sites such as google, facebook, twitter, bing, ect would be forced to shut down. Effectively censoring the internet in order to please the hollywood elite.

(TechCrunch) In case you haven’t noticed, a lot of sites likeReddit and Wikipedia are blacked out today in protest. Google blacked out its logo and is running a huge advertising campaign (including on TechCrunch) to get Internet users to sign petitions and oppose the bills. We’ve changed the TC logo in support, which links to another petition if you click on it, and you can learn more about the issue by reading our SOPA coverage.

The online uproar against the proposed Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in Congress is already causing some in Washington to abandon the SOPA ship. The tide began to turn this weekend when a hearing scheduled for today was canceled and the White House pushed back on some of the more controversial portions of the House bill and its Senate counterpart, the Protect IP Act (PIPA).

Some of the other sites participating are listed below.
