Being avid Bloggers..
You will be seeing this sign often today.
What does it mean?
I took the liberty of "borrowing"..
from one of my favorite Blogs Mad In Crafts ..
as she stated it so eloquently. Just think, if these bills were to be passed, you nor I would NOT be able to do this!
"Today many websites are blacking out or otherwise participating in a protest against the SOPA and PIPA bills that have been introduced to Congress.
If you are unfamiliar with these bills, this video gives an accessible overview of the bills and their consequences
Mad in Crafts would likely be affected if these bills become law. If I am even suspected of having links that infringe on copyrighted material OR if I am found not to be “doing enough” to prevent copyright infringement, the blog could be shut down, or worse.
Do I think the internet will come crashing down if these bills go through? Probably not. But I am generally not a fan of giving the government more intrusive power, especially when it comes to my First Amendment rights. Online piracy is a problem that needs to be dealt with, but these bills are not the answer.
If you would like to contact your representative in regards to the SOPA/PIPA bills,American Censorship has a simple form to send a message urging him or her to vote against the bills."
I've done my part already..
Now is the time for you to do your part..
make a stand..
Contact your representative and let your voice be heard!!
next.. be sure to visit Mad In Crafts..

All three of these photos have their own special charms--the action in the surfing shot, pure contentment in the middle, and winter beauty in the last. How did that get in the FL mix? Are you full time Floridians or just come there to escape the cold?ReplyDelete

Thanks for the info. I hadn't heard about the bills. They must be taking a break from health care, unemployment, & the border problems.ReplyDelete
Done! Thanks for posting this Loui.ReplyDelete
