Visualizing SOPA, the internet blacklist bill

Internet Censorship
JD Rucker November 24 Lifestyle

After last week’s high-energy American Censorship Day flew through with amazing responses from websites everywhere, much of the buzz has faded in the last few days. That simply cannot happen.

SOPA, the bill that would grant power to the US government to censor websites, punish users, and have unprecedented control over the internet in general, is up for a vote next month. Despite all of the feverish activity, now is not the time to slow down. This is a sprint – the vote is next month – and the money (via campaign contributions) behind those supporting the bill is growing.

Congress must be contacted. They must be made aware that votes in favor of the bill will guaranty a loss in their next re-election attempt. People who are not aware of what this bill means must be made aware. This is a potentially world-changing event. If passed, everything changes. The dominoes will start to fall and our freedoms will be pushed closer to the edge.

Here’s an infographic that illustrates what the bill means followed by a video that does the same thing (maybe even better). Spread the word. Make sure that everyone you knows understands what SOPA will mean for them. Act.

  • As the people who do not know about the SOPA they are going to be agree for the bill and if such people amount increase and if bill, gets more favours to assigning then definitely it is going to be harmful to the others. So need for making the people known about the SOPA bill so that other persons and businesses not have to bear the loss in the future. Nice try to make the people aware. Thanks.
