House Delays Taking Action on SOPA Until Dec. 21


Initial reports indicated that voting on the measure — which if passed would create a “blacklist” of websites that infringe on copyrights — would be pushed back to 2012.

@DarrellIssa BREAKING: Judiciary has scheduled the rest of #SOPA markup next Wednesday, Dec. 21 at 9 AM EST.

In its heated two-day debate about H.R.3261 so far, the House Judiciary Committee has been deciding whether to pass the provision to the House floor.
