Just sent: “You made it happen”
I haven’t done too much SOPA/PIPA writing in this space this week due to a combination of it being well-handled elsewhere and time. However, a quick note to say: Woohoo!
This fight is most definitely not over, but being put back on the shelf in an election year is a pretty darn good start.
So, congrats to everyone who worked tirelessly to make this happen, including tons of folks here at Mozilla and even more out there in the broader interwebz land.
Here’s the victory (for now) email we just sent out:
Subject: You made it happen
Great news — this morning, Congressional leaders announced that votes on both the Stop Online Piracy Act and the PROTECT IP Act have been postponed!
Make no mistake — you made this happen.
This week, more than 13 million people spoke out against these disastrous pieces of legislation, and there is no doubt in anyone’s mind that it’s your protest and your action that made it happen.
There will be more that we need to do in the future on this — this fight is not over — but, for now: Thank You.
P.S. — We couldn’t do this without financial support from people like you. Can you chip in $5 or more so we’re prepared for whatever comes next?
