Help Stop SOPA and PIPA

Published on by David A. Kennedy

Today, WordPress asked its community of 60 million users to act against the possible legislation of the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect IP Act. You can help too. This is an important thing to do for anyone who makes a living on the web. As Jeffrey Zeldman of Happy Cog and A List Apart says:

“(SOPA) [is] an ill-conceived lobbyist-driven piece of legislation that is technically impossible to enforce, cripplingly burdensome to support, and would, without hyperbole, destroy the internet as we know it.”

Let’s not let ill-formed legislation, written by people who know nothing about technology, destroy the Internet. Actually, screw that. This isn’t so much about technology as it’s about freedom. Act now!
