Reid postpones Senate vote on anti-piracy bill

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid on Friday abruptly postponed a showdown vote in his chamber, initially set for next week, on an online anti-piracy bill.

In a brief statement issued by his office, Reid said there was no reason why concerns about the legislation, which has pitted Hollywood against Silicon Valley, cannot be resolved. But he offered no new date for a vote. It was to be held on Tuesday.
