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

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.
