SOPA isn't dead yet.

First, thanks to everyone for backing the project. I'm already looking into when I can get the shirts printed since we hit our goal so quickly (100% in 2 hours and now we're 150% funded :)

There are some rumors that Lamar Smith (SOPA's sponsor) is trying to schedule a new markup hearing session on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. The likelihood of this happening is very low, partially because it'd have to be declared an emergency hearing in order to get everyone back in during the Hanukkah holiday. 

Assuming that doesn't happen, the next hearing will be in late January. So we're not out of the woods yet, and we'll have to keep up the pressure against SOPA once Congress returns to session. 

If you haven't already, take some time to call your representative next week to tell them your opposition to SOPA.

Also, here are two good articles from today on SOPA:
