Save Internet Freedom

January 18, 2012

Freedom is the combination of Knowledge, Voice and Choice.

“We need the Internet to remain free because it represents the emerging voice of humanity.” – Raam Dev

Check out the two excellent videos on http://raamdev.com/ about the Internet Censorship Legislation.

And then sign the petitions – any petition, like the Google-backed one – to Save Internet Freedom.

 

Craigslist on SOPA and PIPA:

Corporate supporters of Senate 968 (PIPA) and HR 3261 (SOPA) demand the ability to take down any web site (including craigslist, Wikipedia, or Google) that hurts their profits — without prior judicial oversight or due process  — in the name of combating “online piracy.”

PIPA and SOPA authors and supporters insist they’d only go after foreign piracy sites, but Internet Engineers understand this is an attempt to impose “Big Brother” controls on our Internet, complete with DNS hijacking and censoring search results. Incredibly, many Congress Members favor this idea.

<RANT>Try to imagine jack-booted thugs throttling free speech, poisoning the Internet (greatest of American inventions, the very pillar of modern democracy), and devastating one of the our most successful industries. Totalitarian, anti-American, massively-job-killing nonsense.</RANT>

Tell Congress you OPPOSE Senate 968 “Protect IP Act” (PIPA) and H.R. 3261 “Stop Online Piracy Act” (SOPA):

Supporters of PIPA and SOPA: RIAA, MPAA, News Corp, TimeWarner, Walmart, Nike, Tiffany, Chanel, Rolex, Sony, Juicy Couture, Ralph Lauren, VISA, Mastercard, Comcast, ABC, Dow Chemical, Monster Cable, Teamsters, Rupert MurdochLamar Smith (R-TX), John Conyers (D-MI)

Opponents of PIPA and SOPA: Google, Yahoo, Wikipedia, craigslist, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, eBay, AOL, Mozilla, Reddit, Tumblr, Etsy, Zynga, EFF, ACLU, Human Rights Watch, Darrell Issa (R-CA), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Ron Paul (R-TX)

  2. Now we are at a most important period in history. We must stop both ACTA and SOPA from turning into legislation if we are to keep our freedoms. Life won’t be the same ever again if these laws and regulations are approved.

  3. SOPA has already started and soon we will have ACTA which is substantially more dangerous in Europe predominantly. If you utilize YouTube, Facebook or twitter or have previously shared a song clip you will soon be a lawbreaker.
