Protests The Protect IP Act

Many websites are blacked out today to protest proposed U.S. legislation that threatens internet freedom: the Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). From personal blogs to giants like WordPress and Wikipedia, sites all over the web — including this one — are asking you to help stop this dangerous legislation from being passed. Please watch the video below to learn how this legislation will affect internet freedom, then scroll down to take action.

PROTECT IP / SOPA Breaks The Internet from Fight for the Future on Vimeo.

Not In The US? Petition The State Department.

“I am writing to you as a
voter in your district. I urge you to vote “no” on cloture for S. 968,
the PROTECT IP Act, on Jan. 24th. The PROTECT IP Act is dangerous,
ineffective, and short-sighted. It does not deserve floor consideration.
I urge my representative to vote “no” on SOPA, the corresponding House
bill. Over coming days you’ll be hearing from the many businesses, advocacy
organizations, and ordinary Americans who oppose this legislation
because of the myriad ways in which it will stifle free speech and
innovation. We hope you’ll take our concerns to heart and oppose this
legislation by voting “no” on cloture.”

    • Mark,
      thank you. I am so far behind -as usual- in reading my fave writers. Will go back and read your essays regarding these idiotic pieces of potential legislation.

      Seeing the Google logo today, Wiki, the Chive, and not only other ‘major players’ on the net but bloggers such as ourselves gives me hope.
      Did you see the fabulous animated cartoon on The Oatmeal today, instead of their regular main page? Brilliant!
      Take care my friend

  2. Wish I had not been offline while this was scheduled…I could have used a day off. Especially one where I could chain myself to a virtual fence post. Mmm. Chains.
