Time could be up for SOPA

The US Congress could be ready to drop the controversial SOPA bill after House majority leader Eric Cantor said there would be no vote unless there is consensus on the bill”.

The claim comes from Californian congressman Darrell Issa, who is opposed to SOPA, who says Cantor had told him the action would be taken if no agreement could be reached, despite late reforms to the bill.

The latest blow to the Stop Online Piracy Act comes after president Barack Obama said he would not support the bill in its current form, whilst games industry giants such as Sony, Nintendo and EA have also pulled their backing from the bill.
