Many websites are blacked out today to protest proposed U.S. legislation that threatens internet freedom: the Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). From personal blogs to giants like WordPress and Wikipedia, sites all over the web — including this one — are asking you to help stop this dangerous legislation from being passed.
So how do you take action?
The best way to do this is to call your Senator, or your Congressman, To call them and to let them know that the Internet should be free.
Also, if you can’t do this, go to google’s homepage, there will be a link there to sign a petition. Sign it, and then call your Senator.
Information should be free and easy to access. SOPA, and it’s Senatorial counterpart PIPA, will not ensure or enshrine either of those truths into our country. Do your part.
