U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith has pulled the SOPA legislation from consideration.
Smith said: “I have heard from the critics and I take seriously their concerns regarding proposed legislation to address the problem of online piracy. It is clear that we need to revisit the approach on how best to address the problem of foreign thieves that steal and sell American inventions and products.”
Smith is the same guy who mocked the protests against SOPA claiming that they were just an annoyance.
His language still has not changed much but looks like the protests have worked for now. The battle is won but the war goes on.
