An end to the internet as we know it?
2012 is here and the start to the end of the world as we know it, could be coming around faster than you think. At this moment congress is trying to pass a law that could end your freedom online and shut down your favorite websites, such as Twitter, and Youtube. It will also alter and stop you from being able to do certain research online, even health & history research....which all would stop you from having your freedom of information AND speech online!
It's kind of like an Internet Lock Out.... Almost like the NFL & NBA lockouts, only this one would go on forever and never get unlocked.
The two bills before Congress are known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House. They would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business.
We understand the need to stop piracy but there are more effective ways of doing so than taking away all online freedom.
In an effort to stop this bill from being passed some of THE biggest websites and search engines, such as Wikipedia, have shut down their sites today in protest.
THIS BILL WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING IF WE DON'T STOP IT!!
Not only that, it's a gateway to allow them to restrict us in many other ways...
Remember what happened (and is still happening) in Egypt this time last year??
That would be catastrophic in the United States. Let's stop this from ever happening.
The Senate will begin voting on January 24th. Millions of Internet users and entrepreneurs already oppose SOPA and PIPA and have contacted their congress reps...if you want to keep your freedom, now it's your turn!
It's easy, we did it in about 3 minutes....
1:) Click here to find a local congress representative to call them and let them know you oppose this bill.
You can also call the capitol switchboard at: (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected with your representatives.
2:) Google also has a petition that you could sign.
Fighting online piracy is important. The most effective way to shut down pirate websites is through targeted legislation that cuts off their funding. There’s no need to make American social networks, blogs and search engines censor the Internet or undermine the existing laws that have enabled the Web to thrive, creating millions of U.S. jobs.
Too much is at stake – please vote NO on PIPA and SOPA.
