"It's too early to say for sure, but Oregon Senator Ron Wyden
could very well go down in the history books as the man who saved
"A bill that critics say would have given the government power
to censor the Internet will not pass this year thanks to the Oregon
Democrat, who announced his opposition during a recent committee

forced to reintroduce the measure and will not be able to proceed
