Fight for the Future, one of the driving forces behind yesterday’s internet strike against the SOPA and PIPA bills, reported in an email that the protest succeeded in getting the attention of lawmakers. Before the protest, only 5 senators spoke out against the bills. Now, the count is 35! For more details about how the strike went, see the SOPA Strike website.
The fight is not yet over. It will take 41 solid “No” votes to permanently stall PIPA (and SOPA) in the senate. Please continue to contact your legislators (easy email form!) to let them know you value your freedom online.
