If you don’t know by now, get the hell out from under that rock. SOPA and PIPA are a threat to the internet and therefore our way of life. In protest of these acts, many websites have shut themselves down or posted information on the acts in order to promote awareness of what would happen should these bills be passed:
In essence, these bills are trying to stop pirating of copyrighted material, which is all good. If you work hard on something and someone is stealing it from you, it sucks. You should kick that person’s ass! But the problem is that these bills are so vague that they limit your liberties as a citizen. Your favorite sites, images, videos, etc. could be stripped from the internet without due process. User submitted content will become censored, boring, and uncreative. There needs to be better legislation for this type of shit.
Now, please take a moment to contact your state representative about these ridiculous bills. Fight the good fight!
