I want to start this post by asking how many of you, use Facebook, Google+, MySpace, Twitter, YouTube, or any other of the many various social sites? How many of you have your own website or blog?
If you are one of the
millions billions, utilizing one or more of these sites, then YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SOPA/PIPA!
Please go check out the SOPA Blackout website, where the effects of SOPA/PIPA or laid out for you.
Who will observe?
Major internet companies will observe a “Black Out” tomorrow, as a way to protest SOPA/PIPA
How many people will this Black Out affect?
Check out the “Over 40 Internet Companies Come Out Publicly Against SOPA (Including Us) article on TechCrunch, where there is a list of some of the larger companies against this legislation.
Even WordPress, who does not usually get involved with politics, is encouraging action, with their Help Stop SOPA/PIPA article, posted on their website.
In a nutshell, SOPA/PIPA legislation is just another attempt, by our Government, to strip away freedoms we enjoy as American Citizens, in the name of corporate profit and greed.
How can you help?
Participate in The Great Internet Blackout and help STOP American Censorship.
