SOPA and PIPA

As you may have noticed, many sites (including WordPress) have taken some extreme measures to alert people to two bills before Congress. The Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect IP Act. Both seek to censor sites who might inadvertently link to any copyrighted material.

The Rumpus Room stands beside these protesters. In fact I’ve already written Sen. Jerry Moran, who has been vocal on his opposition to PIPA. I have a letter from him. I put it on my fridge.
