Today is a day where much of the blogosphere has gone dark as have many other websites around the net. It is part of the protest against SOPA and PIPA.
SOPA and PIPA are bills that are being presented to the US government. They stand for Protect IP Act (PIPA) and Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA. Many companies and millions of people oppose them because they would lead to censorship of the web and cause significant damage to business and Internet freedom.
That isn’t because I don’t believe in the protest, far from it. I am against SOPA and PIPA. I support the protesters and I lend my weight to them too.
I think it is important to provide the message about why these measures must be stopped in a variety of ways. I don’t want people to tune out because they see the same message over and over which is why this post is being shared.
We need to reach out to Congress and tell them that they must not pass these. Want to learn more? Watch the video below:
