You may have seen the protests on the internet. Wikipedia going dark, Reddit, Google...

PROTECT IP Act for the Senate which goes to vote on the 24th. SOPA is still in committee but is not dead. Rep. Lamar Smith has said it will go into markups in February.

These bills are over reaching and need to be stopped. Corporations should not have the power to shut down finances of websites that have user created content that is not piracy, even if the MPAA/RIAA think it is.
