This legislation is scheduled to go before the Senate on January 24th.StarCraft II Pro Gamer Steven "Destiny" Bonnell Explains How TwitchTV Is Changing the Game
comments on Meet The Press yesterday where he tried to sell, the Senate companion legislation to SOPA (PIPA) as job saving and job creation, activists should still be on high alert. There were signs in Reid’s comments yesterday that his position was also shifting due to White House opposition. Reid has gone from there being a firm vote on January 24 to hoping that there will be a manager’s amendment available in a week to ten days. Sen. Reid also make remarks saying in effect that he was going to fix the bill.
The problem is that PIPA can’t be fixed. As the White House wrote over the weekend, “New legislation must be narrowly targeted only at sites beyond the reach of current U.S. law, cover activity clearly prohibited under existing U.S. laws, and be effectively tailored, with strong due process and focused on criminal activity. Any provision covering Internet intermediaries such as online advertising networks, payment processors, or search engines must be transparent and designed to prevent overly broad private rights of action that could encourage unjustified litigation that could discourage startup businesses and innovative firms from growing.”

Well, the latter deal has been withdrawn from the FCC, so now what’s the hold up?
It turns out that the Obama FCC under Julius Genachowski is looking to change the rules of the game. Genachowski wants to make it harder to for firms to pick up the spectrum they need to serve an ever-growing demand for wireless Internet. He and the FCC are calling it a change to the “spectrum screen.”
