Don't Let Them Censor the Internet

Don't let them censor the internet

The Senate will soon vote on a bill that would let big corporations censor websites at will.

The bill — the Protect IP Act, or PIPA (S. 968) — is intended to stop online copyright piracy (just like SOPA, its cousin in the House). But PIPA’s authority is so broad it would give corporations unprecedented power to abuse our Internet freedoms.

In the last month, more than one million people have told Congress to reject PIPA and SOPA. Because our response has been so strong, Hollywood, the recording industry and other supporters of this legislation are on the ropes.

But we need to keep pushing. So Free Press is joining more than a dozen organizations in a national call-in day to stop PIPA — a bill that would introduce widespread online censorship, threaten the very existence of thousands of websites and businesses, and even put people in prison for accessing certain content online.

Our senators must respond to the massive public outcry. The consequences for passing such a bill are too dangerous to comprehend. Please call your senators now and tell them to stop PIPA.
