You may have noticed today that some of your favorite sites are down. Even the Google homepage logo is blacked out. This is in protest of SOPA and PIPA, bills that would shut down so many of your favorite sites.....including ChicagoNow. Read below from Google, and find out how you can get involved.
Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor
the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S.
Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business. Millions of Internet users and entrepreneurs already oppose SOPA and PIPA.
The Senate will begin voting on January 24th. Please let them know how you feel. Sign this petition urging Congress to vote NO on PIPA and SOPA before it is too late.
