You may notice the new image that I have on the right sidebar pertaining to the current legislation that is moving through the legislative process that is known at the H.R.3261 - Stop Online Piracy Act or SOPA which will be discussed in the House in early February and the S.968 - Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and heft of Intellectual Property Act of 2011 or PIPA which will likely be discussed in the Senate next week.  Today was a day of strike for several websites including larger sites like Wikipedia, Reddit, Google, Twitter, etc. For a period of 12-24 hours these plus other sites went dark (essentially leading users to pages about SOPA/PIPA) or visual support by blacking out their company logo to call for support in defeating these two actions. Basically, if these two pieces of legislation pass the internet will become censored and will become a shell of what it is. This would lead to many more idiotic lawsuits than there already are and our freedom (with reasonable, not over, policing) to read, listen to and watch what we like is going to be affected. You can view the full documentation of these actions at Open Congress. The link to SOPA is and the link to PIPA is  The thing about these proposals is that they are badly worded and have too many loopholes which would result in an extremely censored internet. Please read and make up your own mind. You know which way I vote... :) Contact your representatives by clicking here.
