if you go on my blog today, you’ll notice a big black banner over my blog title.
This is due to, SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act)— a very dangerous bill that can be passed TONIGHT. It threatens the most vibrant sector of our economy — Internet commerce. It is directly at odds with the United States’ foreign policy of Internet openness, a fact that repressive regimes will seize upon to justify their censorship of the Internet. And it violates the First Amendment.
It’s essentially going to make the US as bad as Communist China in terms of Internet censorship. I’m not. Fucking. Kidding. They will literally have the power to block any site from being visited by any US user. They’re going to systematically destroy basically every freedom we have, to protect the entertainment industry’s profits. They’re getting away with it because they’re sneaky and no one is freaking out about it and the mainstream media is hiding it.

Participate in this. Everyone just, do this, and spread this like it’s wildfire, please.
If this passes, we could very well be cut off from Tumblr, Youtube, deviantArt, and all the other sites we’re used to using.
We need to fight this. Really hard. PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION AND GET THE BANNER ON YOUR BLOG!
