Stop PIPA & SOPA Bill!

A mass online movement is taken place against both of these bills which would basically give the government and the media the power to censor the internet for those of us in the U.S. Please learn more about the movement by visiting:

On January 18, 2012 some pretty well known websites are showing support by blacking out their site in some form. Wikpidea and Google are just two of many that are protesting these bills. On this blog, you may or may not have noticed a video related to Stopping these bills place at the very top of the blog and censored message over the blog's image located on the far upper left hand of the blog.

When you think of piracy you may think it does not apply to you as you do not download illegally, however, under the bill, piracy can include those sites which show video clips, music clips, social networking websites can be blocked by the government if found to be in some sort of violation even with little to no evidence of piracy. Basic censorship of what we are able to view online and even what links we are able to post, etc. It is terrible, but I am glad we are banning together to fight this and ask you to join.
