Big brother never goes away, the tentacles of the corporate empire wriggle their way into ever aspect of your life. Government is there to further the aim and to protect the wealth of the corporate empire. It always takes a consolidated effort by the people to stop this continued attempt at control over all aspects of our life, the Internet is there for you as a tool of self expression and creativity and they don't like that, if they can't control it then they will do their damnedest to destroy it. This bill going through Congress is just another example of the corporate fascism that demands total control over our lives. Only the strength of people power can stop their strangling the creativity of the people.

Tell Congress not tocensor the Internet NOW! -

PROTECT-IPis a bill that has been introduced in the Senate and the House and ismoving quickly through Congress. It gives the government andcorporations the ability to censor the net, in the name of protecting"creativity". The law would let the government orcorporations censor entire sites-- they just have to convince a judgethat the site is "dedicated to copyright infringement."
The government has already wrongly shut down sites withoutany recourse to the site owner. Under this bill, sharing a video withanything copyrighted in it, or what sites like Youtube and Twitterdo, would be considered illegal behaviour according to this bill.
According to the Congressional Budget Office, this bill wouldcost us $47 million tax dollars a year — that's for a fix thatwon't work, disrupts the Internet, stifles innovation, shuts outdiverse voices, and censors the Internet. This bill is bad forcreativity and does not protect your rights.
