Stop the Internet Blacklist Legislation


Internet blacklist legislation before the United States Congress—the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA: S.968) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA: H.R.3261) in the House of Representatives—threaten the Internet in various ways. According to the Electronic Freedom Foundation, this legislation "invites Internet security risks, threatens online speech, and hampers Internet innovation." Links to the details of these bills at the Library of Congress plus detailed analysis by the EFF can be found below.

If you are a U.S. citizen, please consider contacting your elected representatives in Congress to request that they vote against this legislation. The EFF's Stop the Internet Blacklist Legislation page offers a simple way to do so.
