Stop SOPA/PIPA

This journal has no material today in protest of SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act), the bills which will allow the government censor the intenet. I am sure everyone knows that Wikipedia, Mozilla, Wordpress, and hundreds of other sites are going dark today in protest of the bills, which could be used to shut down all material on the web not generated by corporations with big money lawyers -- affecting everything from whether we can get unbiased news reports to how we share our own news and photos with friends. Though the House bill, SOPA, is closer to being stymied, the Senate bill, PIPA, has several dozen co-sponsors. Find out more at http://americancensorship.org and http://www.fightforthefuture.org.
