The US House Judiciary Committee has confirmed that it will delay continuing debate on online anti-piracy measure the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) until after Congress returns from its winter recess.

Committee spokeswoman Kim Smith said that the hearing is expected to be scheduled for “early next year.”

After two days of debate last week, the committee adjourned its mark-up session on the measure without a vote.
