Not to mention the federal civil action procedure that requires the plaintiff to post bond in case the preliminary injuction is incorrect - a deterrent to stop successful honest sites such as Facebook.
My secret comment was of course facetious but what you wrote also unscores the fact that the bill was not necessary to threaten legal action and get the desired result. In "principal" nothing would have changed. There wouldn't be anything to be gained from actually initiating action in that case as his quest would have been endless and expensive. Things have a tendency just to "pop up" on the internet.
