SOPA Update 2: Vote Delayed Until After New Year

Engadget is reporting that the U.S. House of Representatives committee charged with evaluating the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and revising it, if necessary, has put the hearings that were scheduled to resume today on hold until after the Holidays.  Guess they’re too busy making sure the lights will still be on when they come back to care about whether there will be pirate pirated movies floating around the Internets.  It other news, apparently a petition demanding that President Obama veto the bill reached its goal of 25,000 signatures.  Stay tuned for further updates after the New Year.
