If Google, Wikipedia, and WordPress (to name a few) think it’s a serious enough infringement on their capabilities, maybe we should too.
Imagine if content on the internet was restricted and censored. So just anybody couldn’t put anything they want online. Does that not defeat the purpose of the internet as a medium for sharing information? The world wide web would loose it’s zest, it’s allure, it’s personality. Today, numerous sites are restricting information as a signal for you to pay attention and take action.
“Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business. Millions of Internet users and entrepreneurs already oppose SOPA and PIPA.” (Take from Google)
*UPDATE: Members of Congress speak out
