This morning was the 1st time I heard about the Censorship Protest. Have I been out of the internet loop? Many well-known sites will be participating in this protest and “blacking out” their site all day on January 18th,2012. This is what I have learned so far….
Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S.
Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business. Millions of Internet users and entrepreneurs already oppose SOPA and PIPA.
The Senate will begin voting on January 24th. To support the protest, Sign this petition urging Congress to vote NO on PIPA and SOPA before it is too late.
What are your thoughts of the Censorship Protest? Will you Join?
