PostHeaderIcon SOPA and PIPA

Most internet users have heard of this proposed legislation by now. Many websites such as Wiki are protesting this legislation today by blacking out their website or otherwise letting their users know about it.

Americans should not have to tolerate this type of censorship. I encourage you to take action and to encourage others to do the same. The entertainment industry and others concerned about online piracy should use their own legal and technical resources to resolve the matter.

Online piracy is only one of many problems caused by the internet. The entertainment industry argues that it looses $30-$40 Billion to online piracy. Various groups argue that the loses are exaggerated and estimates the loses to be around $445 Million. Regardless of which figure you agree with, studies have shown that Unsolicited Bulk E-mail (SPAM) costs internet providers and employers $70 Billion annually. Other issues such as identity theft and security should be paramount ahead of the entertainment industry's profit.

If you are unaware of what SOPA and PIPA are, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the controversy. More information can be found in the links below.

Wikipedia, Google and others have provided convenient tools to locate quickly contact our representatives. Please take a moment of your time to let them know that our Freedom is important and SOPA and PIPA should not be passed.
