I feel that there have been a few "big" issues that have been nothing more than people saying something will happen, and last time I checked, talk is still cheap.

As long as nothing happens (and I'm sure that nothing will), than who cares?

The fact that the government took down and seized everything from megaupload, which was completely unrelated to sopa, the day after the committee tabled the bill I see as a bad omen. The bill will get rewritten and brought back, let's just hope they actually write something that won't destroy the entire internet like the last version of it.

I think the biggest issues with the Megaupload takedown was that the FBI arrested pretty much everyone except for the connected CEO. That just goes to show that the anti-piracy agencies are corrupt, and that these laws will be abused. SOPA/PIPA is dangerous, it is still around, and they are bringing them back. They are just waiting for the furor to die down, and for the public at large...oh, shiny!
