So is it over yet?

Now that all the boycotts are done and elected officials have taken their names off of sponsorship lists, does that mean that all the hubbub about SOPA and PIPA is done? I think this video presentation by Clay Shirky, from a recent TED event, answers that question.

Full disclosure: I really enjoy listening to Clay. I've read both of this books "Here Comes Everybody," and "Cognitive Surplus" and have admittedly "drank the Kool-Aid" if you will. If anyone disagrees with his assessment of the situation, I'm open to hearing your opinion, but I think he does a splendid job of explaining the major issues with the legislation and the back-story that goes along with them.

All the more reason to involved with teaching our kids about joys of creating and using Creative Commons licensed content!
