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.
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.”
