SOPA On Pause, But Still A Threat

A flicker of good news. The White House has come out against the Stop Online Piracy Act, recognising that it significantly threatens the freedoms of Americans (and indeed the rest of the world, but they haven't heard about us yet). This means it's temporarily shelved, while the discussion continues. Unfortunately, it's sister act, PIPA, hasn't gone anywhere. There is still much work to be done. Cheers, PC Gamer.

And frankly, I'm disgusted by the number of publishers who couldn't be bothered to get back to us or Joystiq regarding their position.
