SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) & PIPA (Protect IP Act)

The link to the above image  will redirect you to the downloadable PDF version so you can read all the fine details. The same website, hosted by Google “End Piracy, Not Liberty” has a petition in opposition if desired to sign and send to Congress. You can also find more informational material, resources for more in-depth study, and numerous more YouTube videos each time the website is refreshed.

I find it interesting that dozens of the online opponents are those I frequent, including (WordPress). You can read about more individuals and companies and their letters they have written to Congress that oppose SOPA and PIPA at the Center of Democracy & Technology website in their article: Growing Chorus of Opposition to “Stop Online Piracy Act.
