Strike Against SOPA & PIPA

Just wanted you to know that today will be the largest internet protest in history. Thousands of sites across the internet, including some of the biggest in the world, will be blacking out and directing people to contact Congress to kill the web censorship bill, SOPA and PIPA.  According to Fight for the Future:

"In just 7 days, the Senate will vote on forever altering the free and open internet by instituting a new regime of extra-judicial, corporate-led website takedowns. This is a fundamental fight about who has power in society -- the people with the means to communicate freely or the governments and corporations that feel threatened."
For more info you can go here and here.  Contact your Senator today to put an end to this bill.  If it passes, the internet will never be the same.

  1. I send in my "e-protest". It feels like this bill came from out of the blue! Have I just not been paying attention?
