Blackout- Protest SOPA/PIPA Internet Censorship

Many websites are blacked out today to protest proposed U.S. legislation that threatens internet freedom: the Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). From personal blogs to giants like WordPress and Wikipedia, sites all over the web, including this one,  asking you to help stop this dangerous legislation from being passed. To learn how this legislation will affect internet freedom, go here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-16590585  and here http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/01/18/join-our-censorship-protest/ , then take action here: http://americancensorship.org/ America  is built on the principles of freedom of speech and of inquiry, it's time to defend them.
