Hundreds from the internet community protested outside the offices of U.S. Democratic Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand who are co-sponsors of the Senate bill PIPA (Protect Intellectual Property Act). For a better understanding of the legislation, review the Standford Law Review explanation here and Roger Yu’s story here.
The legislation threatens the dynamics and freedom of the internet and is primarily supported by special interests such as publishers, large media companies and business trade groups. Many legislators are clueless to the ramifications.
It’s no longer OKAY to NOT KNOW how the INTERNET WORKS!
Stop PIPA / SOPA.
