Dear US Citizens, you are going to approach a new thing that the government that they will devlelop for the internet. Many people are trying to be anonymous to help this protests against the US government and the internet.
The government will make two bills based on this, they are called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act).
SOPA is the act that if you like post something like a video and it has copyrighted background music playing like a sideshow on YouTube, instead of YouTube just blocks your video from showing, but it will force the authority to arrest you and put you in jail. SOPA is a act made up from the congress and big hollywood leaders that expecting to make big money on their films.
PIPA is a act that the US Govermnet will block forgin sites that are out of the US, which that would be terrible. Even we are also fighting of our first amendment of our land of the free.
In January 18, 2012 many sites like Wikipedia, Reddit, Google, Mojang, Mozilla, Tumblr, GrooveShark with serveal thousands sites blacked out to send this message to the people to notice that we are entering this kind of disaster and contact the congress, because with these two bills it still can be possible, even with PIPA on January 24, 2012, and SOPA on Febuary. With these two bills and we don't go aginst, protesting our freedom, this would passed which means internet freedom days are over. And it also means they will be a abilty to block URL's from DNS (Domain Name System).
Remenber that nobody owns the free global internet and we think our government is being stupid and selfish because they want to own it all, no country governments can't own the internet because it's worldwide.
Properties like schools, government buildings, librarys, private properties, etc, have their own filters to block sites to allow or not allow access of a site.
We don't want to be like China because it's not the Capital way to do it, IT'S A WRONG WAY TO DO A SUCH THING IN A FREE COUNTRY LIKE THIS!
We live on a land of the free, why do we need this? Why you guys have to take our freedom away? why?
Mojang is a company that makes games and why do they need to be down? It should mean no more Minecraft forever? About Scrolls and Cobalt too?
Wikipedia was also joined the protest, the English version was shutdown in Jaunuary 18, 2012. Once you enter the English version, will be a thing that will be about SOPA and PIPA and it will also bring you to the articles.
Even Google was one of them too, putting a black rectangle over there logo and once you click on it, it will go to a page about this thing happening. Wanting you participate on this and take a oppistate of the government and the industry.
The only thing we need to do is to cut off their funding of pirate sites, so the movie, music recording companies can earn their money back. Not to block off sites and put our internet under survillance, right?
You need to help us fight for this, it could be better tomorrow, than the bad tomorrow. It will be also to let you go to your favorite sites too.
