    44 opposed means they can't get it past a filibuster

    Of course some of those opposed are shakey. Keep the pressure on.

    PIPA bill vote canceled by Harry Reid

    Someone read the writing on the wall.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has postponed a procedural vote scheduled for Tuesday on the PROTECT IP Act, although he held out a glimmer of hope for a compromise in an online piracy push that many were proclaiming dead.

    "In light of recent events , I have decided to postpone Tuesday's vote on the PROTECT IP Act," Reid said in a statement.

    But the Nevada Democrat said talks would continue between the warring sides Hollywood and content providers are on one side and Silicon Valley and the tech community on the other.
