Take A Stand!

Wednesday, January 18, 2012
I'm sure by now that you have heard of SOPA. If not, is bill that will forever ruin the Internet as we know it. SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) is an act that if any copyright holder to any image (or video, for that matter) just claims that a website/blog/page has their copyright material, the government can shut down that website. That means that blogs like this one will no longer be able to review products, hold giveaways, or even share deals with you. Social networks like Facebook will be shut down because people that now share those I Can Has Chesseburger photos will be holding "copyright" material on there. The government would be able to require that search engines not link to sites that were claimed to have copyright material and internet providers block those sites.

To do your part (sign a petition, send a message to Congress or The Senate, or just let your readers know you don't stand for this), visit these:
