Save the internet!





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 Wikipedia, sites all over the web — including this one — are asking you to help stop this dangerous legislationfrom being passed.

From Wikipedia:

Imagine a World
Without Free Knowledge
For over a decade, we have spent millions of hours building the largest encyclopedia in human history. Right now, the U.S. Congress is considering legislation that could fatally damage the free and open Internet. For 24 hours, to raise awareness, we are blacking out Wikipedia. Learn more.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Test

FROM MOZILLA:

The Protect IP Act (PIPA) – the US Senate's version of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the US House – is gaining steam.
SOPA is still likely to pass – and we expect its supporters to try and move it soon – but, right now, we also need to watch the Senate because Majority Leader Harry Reid is thinking about moving PIPA soon.
But just as SOPA would not achieve its stated goal of stopping piracy online, nor would this. Just like SOPA, this bill will create new cybersecurity risks and jeopardize the basic structure of the internet as we know it.
And as a non-profit committed to keeping the web open and accessible to all, Mozilla wants to ensure that this legislation does not pass in its current form.
By working with other organizations fighting to protect the internet as we know it, and by reaching out to people like you, we're helping organize a massive amount of constituent calls to the Senate, asking them not to passPIPA in its current form.
We need as much support as we can get – will you call the Senate today?

From BOING BOING:

503: Service Unavailable

Boing Boing is offline today, because the US Senate is considering legislation that would certainly kill us forever. The legislation is called the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA), and would put us in legal jeopardy if we linked to a site anywhere online that had any links to copyright infringement.
This would unmake the Web, just as proposed in the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). We don't want that world. If you don't want it either, visit AmericanCensorship.org for instructions on contacting your Senator. The Electronic Frontier Foundation has more information on this and other issues central to your freedom online.
Thanks, 
The Boingers
