SOPA and PIPA

Posted January 19th, 2012 by in Uncategorized / 2 comments


Thanks goes to The Oatmeal for the hilarious graphic above.

So did everyone go black yesterday in protest to SOPA and PIPA?

While the government is known for passing questionable bills, I think this one takes the cake. Some can take comfort in the fact that it was just announced tonight that the White House is unlikely to support the Stop Online Piracy Act or Protect IP Act. Still, while it may be back to the drawing board for Congress, it makes you worry what they are going to come up with next.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, or wish to become more informed about the current situation rocking the internet, here are some helpful links:

And even though you think it may not make a difference, if you do feel strongly enough, you can always voice your opinions to your elected officials. It’s their job to listen to you!
