In an update to our post here, we inform our readers that Congressman Walter Feldman has requested the withdrawal of the so-called Brazilian SOPA bill, which will no longer be voted, at least not for the time being.
According to news reports, the move was motivated by a campaign in social media which characterized the proposal as a form of censorship on the Internet. The proposal was not perfect but we do feel that a good opportunity to finally discuss concrete measures to protect content creators and owners on the Internet was lost here.
This seems to us like another warning for content creators and owners to be more active and effective in defending their rights.
