The US Congress refused to vote on a new anti-piracy law called the Stop Online Piracy Act, listening to protests from major players in the Internet industry. This is reported by Reuters.
Senate Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid admitted that the vote scheduled for January 24, 2012 will not take place, "in light of recent events."
The lower house took a similar position. The head of the legal committee Lamar Smith confirmed that the law in its current form will not be considered. “It’s clear that we need to rethink our approach to dealing with foreign abductors of American intellectual property,” he commented.
