PROTECT IP / SOPA Breaks The Internet from Fight for the Future on Vimeo.
Yikes you guys, have you read about SOPA and PIPA yet? In protest again SOPA, and instead of blacking out my blog for the day, I'm posting this video and giving you these links to learn more. Noticed how Wikipedia, Google, Reddit, Mozilla, Wordpress, I Can Has Cheeseburger, Twitpic, Wired, Greenpeace, Vimeo, and many more major websites are protesting against SOPA? Have you thought about how SOPA could effect your blog personally for that one random time you forgot to credit that one photo you like, or that time you made a video of you singing a song you love, or when you added in a song in the background of a tutorial you made for your blog? Have you thought about how SOPA could really hurt the blogging community as a whole, how it could effect those of us who rely HEAVILY on Social Media sites to keep our businesses running? I'm freaked out about SOPA and PIPA. Click on any of the links above to find a petition to sign against SOPA, to email or tweet your congressmen and women, to support the freedom you currently have in blogging, posting on twitter, facebook, vimeo, youtube, the freedom you have in editing Wikipedia pages, and more. Ps, at O'Reilly.com they are having a free livestream of experts all day discussing ways to "improve your power in Washington from people who’ve been successful at moving it."
Also, here is a letter from some musicians, artists, and creators you may know who are standing against PIPA and SOPA.
For those of you who have started your business thanks to the internet, Etsy sellers, Professional Bloggers, and those of you who hope to start a small business, watch this.
