@cmb4576 - Because SOPA/PIPA were pulled from their respective house's legislative timetables indefinitely does not mean they were shot down, nor does it mean they are dead forever.It only means there has been no vote on them and they do not plan on taking a vote "at this time." Only until the bill(s) is up for a vote and they are voted down by a majourity, would they actually be dead in the water. And in that case, only for that particular legislative session.They could still introduce the exact same piece of legislation each session until the end of time, as some legislators do for particular passions (legalizing marijuna, striking down DOMA, etc). They could also introduce SOPA/PIPA in piecemeal parts of other legislations or standalone bills that sneak it in over time.TL;DR - don't rest on your laurels assuming SOPA/PIPA is gone forever. It isn't, and probably won't be settled for quite some time.
