Your Decorating Hotline is officially joining the protest against Senate Bill 968: the Protect IP Act that is coming before the U.S. Senate next week. If this bill is passed it will jeopardize internet freedom and shift the power of the independent web into the hands of corporations. We must stop it.
Today, January 18, 2012 many sites around the web — from small personal blogs like ours to internet institutions like Mozilla, Wikipedia, reddit, and I Can Has Cheezburger? – will be going dark in protest and to drive their visitors to sites like americancensorship.org to take action and help fight the passage of the Protect IP Act.
We hope you’ll go to http://sopastrike.com/strike/ to learn more and also to click on the pink “Write Congress Now!” button to send an email to your legislators in Washington – letting them know you oppose the restrictions proposed for the web.
P.S. Look for our regular decorating post tomorrow!
