SOPA and PIPA are officially tabled now. Yes a big sigh of relief , the internet was just a step away from a smothering censorship. The house of Senate in USA was about to discuss a possible enactment of the SOPA ( Stop Online Piracy Act ) and Protect Intellectual Property Act ( PIPA ) propsed by the huge media corporations such as Comcast, News Corp, Disney, Universal Music, Warner Music, Paramount Picture,.etc.The unfair monopolisation of the audio visual field by these media gurus together with their unimaginable gains have been seriuosly threatened by the democratization Internet brought about. The masses now are digitilaly free and they have free and unlimited acess to all kinds of materials without having to pay anything and all at a single click. This has madened these media monsters and wanted to exerce some pressure by paying for some senators to try to raise the issue of piracy and all that buble. Nobody believes them anymore .
