    Government has set up hearings regarding this and has blocked many of the opposing voices from joining in. So we basically have media industry lobbyists and corrupt congress people deciding internet law. Suggested that you contact your congress person immediately if you don't want to get raped in a prison shower for linking to an unauthorized Justin bieber stream.

    I wouldn't post a petition unless I thought it was extremely important. All consumers and internet lovers should be on the same page for this one red and blue. Completely ridiculous and another example of corporations interfering with governance./

    Demand Progress does not provide specifics, only rhetoric. Are they talking about SOPA?

    I just say a propaganda ad asking people to support this bill. They implied that this would protect american jobs! The whole thing made me feel sick to my stomach.

    I've seen the ad. What's sad is I bet the ads are generating thousands of calls and emails to Congress.

    Pathetic scare tactics. SOPA and Protect IP need to die.
