Google, Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia, Mozilla, Yahoo, Ebay, Linked In, Reddit and many others are taking action to ensure the internet remains free and open by stopping SOPA / PIPA.
Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA) are bills in the U.S senate and house respectfully, which would allow censorship of the internet. Millions of users including companies such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia and more oppose both SOPA and PIPA. These bills potentially seek to prevent piracy on the internet by shutting down ‘rogue’ websites that allow for the distribution or provide information on or about copyrighted material.
Sounds semi-harmless right? Well it’s not as it opens doors for the censorship of anyone on the net and much more (view below).
