Please remember at election time to VOTE AGAINST anti-Internet politicians (color coded below), and VOTE FOR pro-Internet politicians.

SOPA and PIPA have been stiopped. but here are the next two grievous affronts to your privacy - HR 1981 and ACTA

You told Congress you OPPOSE Senate 968 "Protect IP Act" (PIPA) and H.R. 3261 "Stop Online Piracy Act" (SOPA): NOW tell them you OPPOSE ACTA and HR 1981.

Congress needs to hear from you, or these dangerous bills will pass - they have tremendous lobbying dollars behind them, from corporations experts say are attempting to prop up outdated, anti-consumer business models at the expense of the very fabric of the Internet -- recklessly unleashing a tsunami of take-down notices and litigation, and a Pandora's jar of "chilling effects" and other unintended (or perhaps intended?) consequences.

HR 1981, cynically and misleadingly misnamed "Protect Children Against Internet Pornographers Act" (PCFIPA) requires ISPs to record your every click because you may be a child pornographer. This "turd wrapped in cotton candy" is another fine bill from Lamar Smith (R-TX, 13% approval rating on OpenCongress), the author of SOPA.

Under PCFIPA, your personal history of each web page you have clicked on, or file you have downloaded, would be available to the RIAA for suing music downloaders, to corporations retaliating against critics and whisteblowers, to divorce lawyers looking for dirty laundry, to insurance companies refusing coverage for prior conditions, to blackmailers, to hackers, etc, etc.

Texas Hill Country, Austin, and San Antonio -- do you value your online privacy? Your free and open Internet? Please DUMP Lamar Smith (R-TX) at election time. Recall action would be even better.

Thanks to the unprecedented collective efforts of craigslist users and other concerned citizens this week, movement on PIPA and SOPA has been indefinitely postponed! Word has it that Congress had never before received so many calls and emails regarding any issue whatsoever. Bravo!

“This is altogether a new effect,” said former Senator Chris Dodd,  now head of MPAA and key PIPA/SOPA promoter, comparing the online movement to the Arab Spring. He had not seen in his 40 years in politics “an effort that was moving with this degree of support change this dramatically.”

Ron Paul (R-TX 92% approval on OpenCongress), PIPA applauded the Internet Blackout, saying "Sometimes you need a two-by-four to get them to listen." We're happy to report that craigslist users logged over 30,000 two-by-fours phone calls to Members of Congress Wednesday, and they did not go unnoticed.  :-)

These bills WILL return, and both are so deeply flawed they must die entirely, so the fight is not over.

As of  end of day Thursday, and before the postponement announcements, 19 Senators had dropped their support for PIPA, at least 6 of whom had been co-sponsors of the bill (!) Check it out on PIPA Roll Call.

Californians please note: among the remaining PIPA co-sponsors are craigslist's and the SF Bay Area's own Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) 202-224-3841,  and SoCal's Barbara Boxer (D-CA) 202-224-3553 

Corporate supporters of Senate 968 (PIPA) and HR 3261 (SOPA) demand the ability to take down any web site (including craigslist, Wikipedia, or Google) that hurts their profits -- without prior judicial oversight or due process  -- in the name of combating "online piracy." 

PIPA and SOPA authors and supporters insist they'd only go after foreign piracy sites, but Internet Engineers understand this is an attempt to impose "Big Brother" controls on our Internet, complete with DNS hijacking and censoring search results. Incredibly, many Congress Members favor this idea.

<RANT>Try to imagine jack-booted thugs throttling free speech, poisoning the Internet (greatest of American inventions, the very pillar of modern democracy), and devastating one of the our most successful industries. Totalitarian, anti-American, massively-job-killing nonsense.</RANT>

You told Congress you OPPOSE Senate 968 "Protect IP Act" (PIPA) and H.R. 3261 "Stop Online Piracy Act" (SOPA): NOW tell them you OPPOSE ACTA and HR 1981.

Supporters of PIPA and SOPA: RIAA, MPAA, News Corp, TimeWarner, Walmart, Nike, Tiffany, Chanel, Rolex, Sony, Juicy Couture, Ralph Lauren, VISA, Mastercard, Comcast, ABC, Dow Chemical, Monster Cable, Teamsters, Rupert Murdoch, Lamar Smith (R-TX), John Conyers (D-MI)

Opponents of PIPA and SOPA: Google, Yahoo, Wikipedia, craigslist, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, eBay, AOL, Mozilla, Reddit, Tumblr, Etsy, Zynga, EFF, ACLU, Human Rights Watch, Darrell Issa (R-CA), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Ron Paul (R-TX)

Where does your Member of Congress stand on PIPA and SOPA? (Project SOPA Opera)

PIPA and SOPA Are Too Dangerous To Revise, They Must Be Killed Entirely 

Congress needs to hear from you, or these dangerous bills will pass - they have tremendous lobbying dollars behind them, from corporations experts say are attempting to prop up outdated, anti-consumer business models at the expense of the very fabric of the Internet -- recklessly unleashing a tsunami of take-down notices and litigation, and a Pandora's jar of "chilling effects" and other unintended (or perhaps intended?) consequences.

For example, in a post about Monster Cable lobbying for PIPA, Techdirt points out Monster has blacklisted craigslist as a "rogue site" -- resale of stereo cables by CL users has apparently cut into Monster's profits. (reddit).

There is still time to be heard. Congress is starting to backpedal on this job-killing, anti-American nonsense, and the Obama administration has weighed in against these bills as drafted, but SOPA/PIPA cannot be fixed or revised -- they must be killed altogether.

Rep Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Sen Ron Wyden (D-OR) are championing an alternative to SOPA/PIPA called Online Protection and Enforcement of Digital Trade Act (OPEN) that addresses foreign sites dedicated to piracy, without disrupting basic Internet protocols, or threatening mainstream US sites like craigslist.

Tim O'Reilly, a publisher who is himself subject to piracy, asks whether piracy is even a problem, and whether there is even a legitimate need for any of these bills

On January 18, 2012 at least 7,000 websites blacked out their homepages in protest of SOPA and PIPA internet censorship bills Fight For the Future. Save the internet, this website, and tens of thousands of others. Please remember at election time to VOTE AGAINST anti-Internet politicians (color coded below), and VOTE FOR pro-Internet politicians. See below for those Senators who supported SOPA and PIPA.

(NaturalNews) On January 18, 2012, thousands of websites from around the world came out in protest of two pieces of legislation that threaten to censor the internet as we know it. Google, WordPress, Wired.com, Wikipedia, Tumblr, The Daily Paul, reddit, NaturalNews, and thousands of other websites censored portions or all of their homepages and content in protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act (HR 3261), and the Protect IP Act (S 968), which would essentially give large media conglomerates and the federal government unbridled power to censor the internet.

The website SopaStrike.com says the protest is the "largest online protest in history," and its creators are urging everyone who encounters a censored page to contact their Congressmen and oppose both SOPA and PIPA. The page also contains a full list of confirmed participants in the blackout, as well as an "unfiltered list" of all additional sites that said they planned to participate:http://sopastrike.com/

 

The outcry against SOPA and PIPA has been so loud and effective that, according to House majority leader Eric Cantor, SOPA will now be shelved, and no vote will take place "unless there is consensus on the bill." This decision represents a huge victory in the short term -- but a potential vote on the bill could still rear its ugly head at any time, and most likely at a time when nobody is looking (http://www.slashgear.com/sopa-shelved-after-obama-announcement-16209449/).
 


Sec 105 of SOPA threatens freedom of health speech, aligns with FDA Trilateral Cooperation Charter to potentially eliminate access to dietary supplements.
