SOPA: We need to band together!


Join us in protesting SOPA! This affects all of us with blogs! Post something like this on your blog or if you can go with a blackout. (And please pass this on!)


There is a bill in Congress that will affect your rights on the web and will censor all web sites, blogs, etc. In a nutshell :
SOPA explicitly states that companies will be liable for everything their users post. Sites like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Reddit, Wikipedia, or any sites that allow user generated content CANNOT exist under these laws. Immediately after this bill is passed, you will see the media mafia (MPIAA, RIAA, etc) replacing websites like Wikipedia with commercialized encyclopedia software. Mainstream media outlets will not cover this bill because they are the ones lobbying for it.

If you want to know more - Google created a doc to read and inform - SOPA for Dummies.

WRITE YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND STOP THIS BILL FROM PASSING!
To help you do this stop by Fight the Wall and connect with your Representative!

Thanks!

We posted earlier. And to answer Chey, we can't imagine an internet without her. :)

Quite right. Don't let them have this much power.

BTW, Target is much better. Thanks for the purrs!

Yes, yes, the human who helps me type my blog wrote to the Congressman about this. Hey, please look at my fantasy blog called Tux the Cat and His Exotic Exploits at http://tuxthecat.com

I'm trying to get more people to follow my adventures since I started it last September. Thanks! Tux
