PROTECT IP Act Breaks The Internet by Fight for the Future

Today, Congress held hearings on the PROTECT IP Act and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), two bills that would give the power to the government and content owners to censor and block websites that host even just one piece of content that allegedly infringes a copyright.  The above video addresses the Senate version of the PROTECT IP Act, but a much more severe House bill was just introduced and is set up to pass soon if we don’t take action NOW.  These bills threaten the very essence of the web and the communities that have risen from it.

Please stand with us to fight this legislation geared toward stifling free speech and innovation online.
