Stop SOPA & PIPA

You’ve probably seen this all over by now… among other places, I’ve encountered it on Google, Craigslist, and Pinterest, and on my friends’ feeds on Twitter and Facebook. I read into the details and agree that SOPA and PIPA should be voted down. While I do think piracy, copyright infringement, and plagiarism are serious problems on the internet, I don’t think that the kind of power provided by SOPA and PIPA to shutdown sites is appropriate.

Here are a couple of links if you want to read more:
Internet Blacklist Legislation from the Electronic Frontier Foundation
SOPA Information & Text from the Library of Congress
PIPA Information & Text from the Library of Congress

And if you are a blogger, help become part of the solution to the real problem – the stealing of original work by individual artists, journalists, everyday people – by crediting your sources. :)
