This issue has recently garnered a lot of attention online and in the media because of the far-reaching effects that censorship would have on every internet user, as well as its growth-stunting impact on businesses.
Right now there are two bills in front of congress, Protect IP Act (PIPA) and Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). Millions of people, everyone in our office included, have already signed petitions opposing the extreme regulations that are in these acts.
Our friends at Wiki are blacking out the site today in protest, as is Google, but with less extreme measures of calling attention (can you imagine the uproar if Google went down for an entire day?! Chaos!)
Please take two minutes to sign this petition and preserve the free and open internet. Unless you truly want the government to have more control over your every actions. I choose the right to choose.
