The SOPA and PIPA bills are dangerous.
They’re not really about piracy, either. Piracy is just the excuse. These bills, like most copyright legislation in the past two decades, are about the entertainment industry holding back innovations that might disrupt their business models. It’s yet another power grab.
Worse, these bills could actually make the net less secure, while providing an infrastructure for censorship that will inevitably be abused.
And by blocking innovation, these bill will actually prevent new jobs and slow our economic recovery.
Call or write your legislators. Let them know that handing our freedom and security over to the content industry will cost them votes.
