Stop SOPA – Join the Largest Online Protest in History

Today is the largest online protest in history. Many notable sites are joining together to stop the internet censorship bills, SOPA and PIPA.

Why Protest?

On Jan 24th, Congress will vote to pass internet censorship in the Senate, even though the vast majority of Americans are opposed. We need to kill the bill – PIPA in the Senate and SOPA in the House – to protect our rights to free speech, privacy, and prosperity. We need internet companies to follow Reddit’s lead and stand up for the web, as we internet users are doing every day.

What is SOPA?

  • Google
  • WordPress
  • Wikipedia
  • Reddit
  • Flickr

    My favorite black out sites so far are as follows:
    1. Google.com – the way they censored their logo.
    2. Reelseo.com – they censor 4-5 words out of every ten in a sentence. (at least the first time I visited their site today).
    3. Wikipedia – The whole website is unavailable with just a short blurb on how this legislation could fatally damage the free and open Internet.

    Yesterday was huge for the anti-SOPA movement. All day long on Facebook I saw the link that Google’s blacked out logo linked to popping up as a share. Hopefully it’ll be a wake up call to these representatives. SOPA makes us angry. You wouldn’t like us when we’re angry.

    Yeah hopefully the protest yesterday will stop the SOPA/PIPA bill. I’m a scoutmaster for a troop of 11 year olds and last night they even brought up the protest. (Although their interpretation of what was happening was twisted–one of them said that “the government shut down wikipedia”). LOL!
