Good news, but as the New York Times reports:
The statement did not threaten a presidential veto, but it made plain what types of piracy enforcement measures the White House would not accept.
The White House seems to understand what’s happening, but it’s not over yet.
Side note: The White House has a website for citizens to post petitions to address important issues. I know it’s guaranteed by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, but it feels very modern to me. Maybe we’ll have that in France in five years time.
