Reid yields, postpones Senate’s PIPA vote

Woot! Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has buckled and postponed the U.S. Senate vote on PIPA originally scheduled for next Tuesday! Details at PCWorld and elsewhere.

All the “shelving” and “postponing” of SOPA/PIPA legislation is probably just a maneuver, waiting for the heat and attention to fade, before reviving the censorship efforts. But for the moment — and only for the moment — opponents can bask in the glow of a job well done.
