Senate Republicans move to stop SOPA twin PIPA

SOPA is not only DOA in the House, but Senate Republicans are now set to block it in Senate. From Senator Cornyn:

U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, joined Sens. Grassley (R-IA), Hatch (R-UT), Sessions (R-AL), Coburn (R-OK), and Lee (R-UT) in sending a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) requesting him to delay consideration of S. 968, the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA), so that concerns with the proposed legislation can be addressed.

“We strongly believe that the theft of American intellectual property is a significant problem that must be addressed to protect property rights,” the Senators wrote. “However, for both substantive and procedural reasons, the process at this point is moving too quickly and this step may be premature.”

The effort to stop SOPA and its regulation of the internet is succeeding.
