Stop SOPA – Join the Largest Online Protest in History

Jan 18, 2012 / by Boyd Norwood

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?

If you don’t know, click here, here, or here to read all about it.

A few notable websites that have confirmed their participation in the protest are:

  • Google
  • WordPress
  • Wikipedia
  • Reddit
  • Flickr

What Can I Do?
