So today Wikipedia is black (will be back up tomorrow), and Google has a black banner over its logo. Why is this you ask? Simple SOPA and PROTECT IP. For those of you who have been keeping up with this legislation I will simply say “I am now ready to add my voice to those who are protesting these bills”!

The purpose of these bills is supposedly to make the internet “safe” for copyrighted material that exists in the internet. Or more specifically the “legal and authorized” copyrighted material on the internet. When really all it does is create a new internet where the media companies are allowed to rule. With really no government over site, just action. The media companies will use the government to enforce there will, and probably create a “net” much different from the one we know today. Certainly a net where free speech is limited and if you step out of line one time you will never be seen again. On the “net” that is.

These bills are certainly a massive violation of the right to free speach. But they also setup a fairly totalitarian internet where the media companies will be “holding all the keys” ~Morphius.
