STAND TOGETHER! Stop SOPA & PIPA!


Recommended Posts

Laws like SOPA & PIPA put creative, Fair Use sites like OC ReMix in jeopardy.

The concerns of copyright holders, while important, do not justify the theft of domains, punitive action without evidence, or other abuses of power and compromise of due process.

STAND TOGETHER against laws that will irreparably damage a free and open internet.

Wikipedia's black-out page makes it fiendishly easy to find out who your representatives and senators are, and how to contact them. Simply go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:CongressLookup?zip=11111, but replace the zip code with your own, obviously.

http://projects.propublica.org/sopa/ will tell you which representatives and senators support or oppose the bills.

Wait, why the hell is Ted Deutch and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (2 of the local congress members in the heavily gerrymandered state of Florida) in favor of SOPA? And since Schultz is the current chair of the DNC, she has considerable power on members voting Yea or Nay...

EDIT: Senator Nelson as well? I need to start calling these members STAT!

Thanks for the links! Contacted my representative and one of my senators (tried contacting Feinstein but the site's experiencing technical difficulties)

The real question is why the fuck would ANYBODY support these bills, especially in a land where we like to believe we have so much freedom

It's because they don't know the full details of the bill, nor do they have any idea of the repercussions that would come to pass if the bills are passed.

And no one has told them of this. It's up to us to show this; it's also why the internet is blacked out. Bit of a lesson to show what the sites would do if the internet was censored.

You haven't gotten it yet? Both parties take campaign money from the same big donors (the film industry donates particularly heavily to the Democrats) who tell them to pass legislation that helps their interests. The whole system is broken because there is so much campaign money swishing around, creating the wrong incentives putting the interests of those with a lot of money and connections ahead of the people.

Do you watch The Young Turks? They have pretty good coverage on the politics behind SOPA, which is pretty much non-existant on any major cable news show.

Also good is RussiaToday and The Alyona Show.
