Stop Censorship, Oppose SOPA/PIPA

This Wednesday (1/18/12) OpenCUNY.org will be “blocked” from 8AM to 8PM in protest of the Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA) and the Protect-IP Act (PIPA). TAKE ACTION >>

Why are we protesting SOPA/PIPA?

SOPA and Protect-IP create an architecture for internet censorship” … “thousands of commercial ISPs, colleges, small businesses, nonprofits, and other entities that maintain domain servers are going to have to reconfigure their networks, potentially at substantial cost, in order to easily comply with the new law” … “if enacted, either of these bills will create an environment of tremendous fear and uncertainty for technological innovation, and seriously harm the credibility of the United States in its role as a steward of key Internet infrastructure.”
