Anti SOPA Parking page

You have been redirected here because there are two bills before the US Congress that would take the content you requested away from you forever, so we may as well start now.

These bills are the "Stop Online Piracy Act" (SOPA) and "Protect IP Act" (PIPA). There are three problems with these bills that cannot be repaired:

  1. They cannot stop online piracy, nor protect any IP (Intellectual Property).
  2. Instead they take away sacred rights like freedom of speech and due process guaranteed in the Constitution.
  3. They create chilling effects in which many of the technologies we have come to accept (user comments, self-publication, personal pictures and videos and chat, video and audio chat). These bills quite literally break the Internet.

The bills cannot be fixed. They must be defeated. Below you will find educational materials and, should you desire it, info on how to help in the fight. This info is taken from Reddit.

We do not support stealing the work of others. The rights given to copyright owners are found in the Copyright clause, which reads thus:

"To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries."

But that protection must not extend to unlimited times or it prevents, rather than promotes the progress of science and the useful arts - and breaks the social contract. In addition, when anybody at all comes to take away our civil liberties for any reason, we're liable to get cranky.

This protest will continue until the bills are quashed or - if enacted - the law is repealed.

Stopped they must be; on this all depends.  - img credit
