SOPA and PIPA are dead!

…okay, not really. The official language used says that consideration on them has been “postponed,” meaning that they could — and likely will — be brought back in the future.

And of course the whole Megaupload thing just happened, showing that the government didn’t even need SOPA or PIPA to do what it wanted to do.

But for now, rejoice in the fact that two bills that could have destroyed the internet as we know it are gone, at least for now.

Congratulations, Internet, you win.
