Did the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), also known as H.R.3261, pass today?

It'll give the government new powers to block Americans' access websites that corporations don't like. The bill would criminalize posting all sorts of standard web content -- music playing in the background of videos, footage of people dancing, kids playing video games, and posting video of people playing cover songs.
This legislation will stifle free speech and innovation, and even threaten popular web services like Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook.

According to OpenCongress.org, it has not been passed by the House which is the first step in the process.  We'll just have to wait and see, though.
