Stop SOPA and Protect-IP

Vote for the Net is a new campaign where Americans can sign a pledge only to support candidates who oppose SOPA and the PROTECT-IP Act. In the words of the pledge: “In 2012, I will only support candidates who stand for Internet freedom and who oppose the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) and SOPA. I will work against any candidate, of any party, who votes to censor and stifle the Internet.”

This site is bipartisan – supporting both Democrats and Republicans who realize what these two acts – in the Senate and the House – would do to the internet.

Another call to action is at Don’t Censor the Net. This site explains how SOPA and PIPA would effectively kill any sites with user-contributed content. This would quite probably mean no Youtube or Facebook. (It would also most likely kill wordpress.com and other blog hosts.)

Many websites, such as Wikipedia and Reddit, will be going black starting at midnight January 18. Please join them in taking these two threats to the internet very seriously.
