THIS IS NOT A JOKE!!!!!!!!!
LISTEN TO ME!
IF THIS BILL IS PASSED,
ANY AND ALL SITES CAN GO DOWN, INCLUDING YOUTUBE, FACEBOOK, TWITTER, MYSPACE, GOOGLE+, TUMBLR, BLOGGER, AND MANY MORE!
IF ANYTHING IS POSTED THAT VIOLATES THIS BILL:
IT WILL BE SHUT DOWN.
EVEN IF YOU ARE ONLY SINGING A SONG FOR 4 SECONDS, YOU WILL BE SUED.
REMEMBER ME TELLING YOU ABOUT THE INTERNET KILL SWITCH?
If passed, the "Stop Online Piracy Act," or SOPA (HR 3261), could rip apart the open fabric of the Internet. People could see their websites disappear from the Internet for a "crime" as innocent as posting a video of themselves singing along to a favorite song.
It paves the way for the sort of heavy-handed blocking tactics you'd expect to see in China, not the United States.
SOPA violates our right to free speech.
GO HERE TO HELP:
IF WE DON'T STOP THIS,
THERE WILL NOT BE AN INTERNET TO FIGHT FOR FREEDOM ON.
ALL OF OUR HARD WORK WILL BE GONE.
Not that it MATTERS or anything.
