January 18, 2012 – Stop SOPA and PIPA
Today is an important day, ultimately deciding the future of the internet. If you believe in a free, uncensored internet, take two-minutes out of your day to write your local state elected officials to oppose the “Protect IP” bill. Wikipedia has set-up a great tool to help you do this.
Feel free to copy and paste this quote from SOPAStrike.com:
I am writing to you as a voter in your district. I urge you to vote “no” on cloture for S. 968, the PROTECT IP Act, on Jan. 24th. The PROTECT IP Act is dangerous, ineffective, and short-sighted. It does not deserve floor consideration. I urge my representative to vote “no” on SOPA, the corresponding House bill.
Over coming days you’ll be hearing from the many businesses, advocacy organizations, and ordinary Americans who oppose this legislation because of the myriad ways in which it will stifle free speech and innovation. We hope you’ll take our concerns to heart and oppose this legislation by voting “no” on cloture.
