Sign Google’s SOPA PetitionPosted: January 18, 2012
Chances you’ve heard about SOPA and PIPA by now. The bills, financed by the MPAA (who tried to make MP3 players and VCRs illegal too) seek to stop internet piracy through a series of strict censorship regulations. For example, YouTube could be taken down by the federal government if one home video featured a popular song in the background. Today many popular websites such as Wikipedia and Google have fully or partially shut down in protest, and Google is running a protest petition. SOPA seems to be dying, but it can’t hurt to sign this. Please do.
