An anti-SOPA image

The following text is shamelessly borrowed from, because we felt we couldn’t improve on their explanation of why you should vehemently oppose SOPA and PIPA, the copyright enforcement bills currently being considered by Congress. Please read on and call your senators.

What is PIPA?

PIPA is a poorly envisioned Senate copyright enforcement bill that will censor our Internet and kill jobs in the rapidly growing Internet industry. This bill (and its House counterpart, SOPA) were designed by lobbyists and are being sped through Congress with virtually no debate. Almost every Internet company has strongly come out against PIPA.

Why does this matter to me?

These bills threaten sites like Cheezburger, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and any others that rely on user participation. They will allow the government to censor sites and force companies to monitor your email and restrict websites that post or link to infringing content.

What can I do?

Call your Senator today and tell them to vote against PIPA. We have provided a list of phone numbers for each state below.
