Stop SOPA & PIPA

Join today's online protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) & the Protect IP Act (PIPA) by signing this petition to join the strike or contact your legislators. For more information on these pieces of legislation, both Google and Wikipedia, who are participating in the strike, have placed SOPA/PIPA on their front pages. You can read the text of SOPA and PIPA, available from OpenCongress. Please contact your legislators on this important issue. Here's a quick way to do so, but remember contacting your legislators individually with a personal message is much more effective. Both Senators Crapo and Risch have reported technical issues in their office this morning, hopefully from all the Stop SOPA/PIPA emails & calls they are receiving, so keep trying.

Glad to have found your blog. It's refreshing to see an Idaho progressive's take on local issues. I specifically came here when I was searching for info on Moyle's connection to fur farming. Thank you for your great coverage of it.

Congrats! SOPA was stopped! I and my search engine http://www.usemeplz.com protested and now we did it! There is another problem called ACTA - the legitimacy of the signing of this agreement is in doubt to many experts in many countries. President Obama plans to sign an agreement without having the authority and bypassing the approval of the Senate, in response to a prominent rights in the U.S. have promised to challenge the agreement in court.
