Stop SOPA and PIPA
Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) are two US bills that threaten internet freedom.
“Imagine a World Without Free Knowledge” – Wikipedia
Google, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Wikipedia, Mozilla and millions of people all over the world are opposed to the bill which threatens prosperity, online security, and freedom of expression. The inventor of the internet, Tim Berners-Lee is even against the bill.
Wikipedia has also closed down it’s English site today in protest to the bill.
If the bill gets passed it could mean your favourite social network, search engine or rap blog could be shut down. Imagine a world without Google, Facebook and Youtube.
“The internet is the most powerful tool we have for creating a more open and connected world. We can’t let poorly thought out laws get in the way of the internet’s development. Facebook opposes SOPA and PIPA, and we will continue to oppose any laws that will hurt the internet.” – Mark Zuckerberg
