A co-worker brought to my attention about SOPA. For those of you who are not aware of this bill- It is a bill that congress is trying to pass (including PIPA) that requires internet censorship. Reddit, Wikipedia, Wordpress and Google (possibly Facebook-announcement tomorrow) will be protesting tomorrow by blacking out there website and/or showing support in some other way. Instead of shutting my blog down- I thought to show support by bringing this issue to light for others.
Sorry students, you will have to write your own papers/projects by using the LIBRARY!
This would give the government the authority to block access/shut down any site or link that posts copyright material. The bill also requires search engines such as Google and others to enforce this. However, I am learning this bill would not only block access for foreign websites, but American websites as well. Will you let this be the end of websites such as Youtube? Support/Strike and spread the word. Let's kill this bill! Join tomorrow Jan. 18th for an entire day. On twitter tweet #SOPASTRIKE.On Facebook share this link.
