To all U.S. readers: Take a moment today to go to Wikipedia, enter your ZIP Code, and follow the link to your Congressman. Tell them to vote AGAINST SOPA and PIPA, the two bills now before Congress that would suppress the internet.
Existing copyright law, including the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), are sufficient to protect rights owners' interests.
This isn't China. This isn't a dictatorship. This is a free country with free speech enshrined in its basic principles. Protect it. If you don't speak up, we all get what you deserve. Do it! Right now. Help save the free internet. Please.

Featured Comment by Erik: "Congress.org can be used to identify senators and representatives."
Featured Comment by T Bannor: "I sent a note to my senators urging SOPA be dropped. The lack of due process is a big problem. However, as a stock shooter who's had images ripped of from sites that paid for legitimate use, I think we need to come up with some way to protect folks like me. One of my stolen images is now on free wallpaper download sites all over the planet."
