What an Internet Protest Looks Like


There is an internet black out today protesting SOPA and PIPA.
Facebook (the government sell out social network) is NOT participating.

PIPA has already passed out of committee and is primed for
consideration by the full Senate on January 24. What does this mean?
PIPA is much farther along in the process than its House cousin the
"Stop Online Piracy Act," or SOPA.

On January 24th the Senate is voting on whether or not to move forward
on the PROTECT IP Act, or PIPA, the Senate version of the so-called
Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA.
Tell Congress that you oppose S. 968

This vote is one of the last stops on the way to PIPA becoming U.S. law.
Sign up to call your Senators on the 23rd and tell them to vote "no" on PIPA

UPDATE: As of this afternoon, Senator Roy Blunt has withdrawn his co-sponsorship of PIPA.
"Senate Leader Harry Reid is pushing forward with legislation that is deeply flawed and still needs much work. That is why I’m withdrawing my co-sponsorship for the Protect IP Act."
Should have never got into bed with Reid in the first place and co-sponsored! But atleast he's listening and being vocal about his withdrawl.
