Yes, bloggers, you might blog for fun, but there is a bill in Congress that will affect your rights on the web and will censor all web sites, blogs, etc. In a nutshell :
SOPA explicitly states that companies will be liable for everything their users post. Sites like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Reddit, Wikipedia, or any sites that allow user generated content CANNOT exist under these laws. Immediately after this bill is passed, you will see the media mafia (MPIAA, RIAA, etc) replacing websites like Wikipedia with commercialized encyclopedia software. Mainstream media outlets will not cover this bill because they are the ones lobbying for it.
If you want to know more - Google created a doc to read and inform - SOPA for Dummies.
WRITE YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND STOP THIS BILL FROM PASSING!To help you do this stop by Fight the Wall and connect with your Representative!
There is more on stopping American censorship with SOPA and PIPA on AmericanCensorship.org.
Your Senators need to hear from you now. Today. The bill will be passed in just a few days if you don't act.
