srz bsnz!  

January 18th, 2012 is the largest online protest in history, to stop the internet censorship bills, SOPA & PIPA. Join in by blacking out your site and urging everyone you can reach to contact Congress now.

Here in the Netherlands we have an organisation thats the same as PIPA and SOPA. They managed to force (through courtorder) 2 major internetdistributors to lock off all their clients from the website Piratebay.org. They took it back to court to get the ban lifted because it goes against our constitution but for now we still can't access the website.

GTFO our internetz! I would sign this petition but because I dont live in the USA I dont know if it will help. I made sure my american friends did though.

Haha. In my letters, I mentioned the hypocrisy of censoring our citizens while criticizing the censorship in other countries. I hope the state department starts pressuring Congress to drop this ridiculous censorship. We're already hypocrites in other ways, but to lose free speech to this type of censorship undermines our identity as a democratic country.

As long as there are greedy corporate fascists/lobbyists, it'll never quite feel like a true democratic country

SOPA doesn't stand a chance anymore, its pretty much stuck in limbo atm due to not enough support and Obama administration blocking it. Plus the biggest things that it proposed have already been sliced off, but it most likely still wont go anywhere.

I am so glad you posted this :) I have already signed the petition so I hope whatever effort is put out will help stop this bill.

If you go to Google, those of us who live in the US can sign the petition to stop SOPA and PIPA.
If you want to sign it follow the link

Huhu, signed the petition~ (I was wondering how to protest against this, if we're not in the US...)

It was kinda funny, in one of the other forums somebody said that the rest of the world was more concerned about it than the Americans themselves XD
