You've heard about it, you know what it is. On January 24th SOPA will come up for voting, and if it passes the internet will die. They say it is only to stop piracy, but it's only a matter of time before it is used to stop much more than it was intended to.
The bill will already shut down huge sites where communities flourish on parodies and sharing their favorite things. Imagine what will happen when someone with a bit of power doesn't like someone's idea? Banned. And think of all the organized protests in Egypt that couldn't have happened if it weren't for Facebook. This bill will not only take away our daily dose of funny pictures, videos, and blogs but it will also eventually take away our greatest way to communicate and express ourselves freely.
The only people pushing this bill are the ones who stand to profit. A bill driven by greed will never stop at just its outlined use. Tomorrow thousands of websites will strike in protest.
