The Stop Online Piracy Act/Protect IP Act (SOPA/PIPA) are two very dangerous pieces of legislation that are being pushed through Congress right now that could ruin the internet as we know it. If passed many of your favorite websites including Facebook, Youtube, and even WordPress could be shut down because theses bills can shut down any websites that post material that is considered pirated. The problem is that these websites can be blocked for anything that its users post even if the websites take down the offending material.
In protest of these bills, many websites will be going black tomorrow to show what it would be like without these websites if they were shut down. I feel strongly about stopping these bills and will also be participating in the blackout.
