Support the Blackout: Oppose SOPA and PIPA

Oppose SOPA and PIPA

(new-power.org)

The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) are dangerous threats to freedom of speech. All people who value civil liberties should speak up against these pieces of legislation. Although the language of the legislation aims to shut down violations of copyright, the language is overly broad. It creates a situation where the state can muscle almost any  online service or webpage for any number of reasons. It creates a situation where the state can muscle internet services into censoring dissent. Several internet sites are “going black” in protest. New Power is joining the protest.

  1. This evil should be condemned by all wellmeaning liberalist in the world.
    Freedom of expression is a right but not a privilege.
    It non negotiable, its untransferable.
    So I condemn this act in whatever appearance.
