Say "NO" to SOPA & PIPA

Maybe you’ve seen the news.  There are two bills currently in congress, that if passed, will threaten the free speech of this website and many others – SOPA and PIPA.  These bills put everything that makes the internet great in danger: innovation, creativity, free speech and the free spread of information.
PIPA would give the government new powers to block Americans’ access to websites that corporations don’t like. The bill lets corporations and the US government censor entire websites and cut sites off from advertising, payments and donations.
This legislation will stifle free speech and innovation, and even threaten popular web services like Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook.
The bill is scheduled for a test vote in the Senate on Jan. 24th: We need to act now to let our lawmakers know just how terrible it is. Will you fill out the form HERE to ask your lawmakers to oppose the legislation and support a filibuster?
Please support this site and others by taking 30 seconds to tell congress you say “NO” to SOPA and PIPA!
