Save the Internet!

Say no to SOPA and PIPA! Don't know what I'm talking about?

Be enlightened.

Or if you don't like reading, check out these videos:

PROTECT IP / SOPA Breaks The Internet from Fight for the Future on Vimeo.

On top of all the things mentioned in those videos, the concept of fan sites would be destroyed. The hilarious Garfield Minus Garfield wouldn't have existed under SOPA. The brony phenomenon never would have happened without the Internet. Much of the YouTube community will be destroyed if SOPA passes. Even this harmless blog will be in danger of being taken down. The past two entries alone were about the Batman, and that's without going into the rest of my almost 100 post history.

Yes of course companies should be allowed to combat theft of their materials. They would lose potential profits otherwise, but the way SOPA and PIPA will do things are much too extreme and make our Internet like China's. Is that something we really want to aspire to? *Insert bad joke about 2012 being the end of the Internet here*
