STOP SOPA! - Stop Internet Censorship - Protect Freedom of Speech!
Stop Internet Censorship - Protect Freedom of Speech!
Steve Troletti Photography has gone dark today in protest of the U.S. Stop On-Line Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect-IP Act (PIPA).
The web has given everyone a platform to share their ideas and creative works with the world. The language of these bills creates too many liabilities for websites to allow you that freedom.
These bills also institute the same systems for censorship previously reserved for authoritarian regimes. These systems should never be established regardless of intent.
The companies that controlled your access to media before the Internet are the same ones trying to change the Internet now. They are spending a lot of money to influence your representatives in Congress and the Senate.
If you hope to maintain a free and open Internet, without government censorship, please contact your representative in Congress and tell them you oppose SOPA and PIPA.
