Many are celebrating the death of SOPA and PIPA, as the White House issued a statement against some of their key provisions this past Saturday.
I’m not so excited. President Obama’s statement fell short of a veto threat. And remember: President Obama made an unambiguous veto threat against NDAA, which authorizes indefinite detention of US citizens without trial, and still signed it.
We celebrate premature success at our own peril.
