Last night a proposed law passing through the United States Congress was blocked by Obama.
California congressman Darrell Issa, an opponent of Sopa
, the Stop Online Piracy Act, said he had been told by House majority leader Eric Cantor that there would be no vote
unless there is consensus on the bill.
Congressional leaders are preparing to shelve controversial legislation aimed at tackling online piracy after president
Barack Obama said he would not support it.
