Imagine a World Without Free Knowledge…
Right now, the U.S. Congress is considering legislation that could fatally damage the free and open Internet.
Quoting from the good people @ Make: “SOPA, “Stop Online Piracy Act” (H.R. 3261), and PIPA, “PROTECT IP Act” (S. 968), are potentially poisonous to many of the things that we stand for as Makers. Not only has the internet had a hugely positive impact on our economy, on innovation, on our culture, and greatly democratized the dissemination of media and information, but it has allowed people from all walks of life and all areas of concern to become publishers, media producers, journalists, educators, doers, makers.”
Here’s what you can do:
1) Learn if your U.S. Representative or Senators support SOPA or PROTECT IP through SOPAOpera.org.
3) Participate in Better Activism Day, a free livestream of experts discussing ways to “improve your power in Washington from people who’ve been successful at moving it.”
