SOPA and PIPA - Nothing But Wrong

tcr! · Nov 16, 2011 at 8:00 pm

SOPA and PIPA: A giant step in the wrong direction for the internet

Today, we’re joining pretty much every major internet and technology company in voicing our opposition to the PIPA (PROTECT IP Act) and SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) legislation before the House and Senate. For those who have never heard of these two acts, they are proposals before Congress that give incredibly aggressive censorship controls to our government (acting on behalf of rights holders).

SOPA, controversial online piracy bill, gains support as lobbying intensifies

Google, Facebook, Yahoo and other Web giants launched a media blitz on Wednesday with full-page newspaper ads urging lawmakers to vote against the proposal.

Send a free letter to your congressperson. Do it.

Done. I sent Mr. Wyden a nice letter today reminding him of those of us who's livelyhood depend on the web and how these bill would cause job loss over time. The music and movie industries can suck it.
