PROTECT IP / SOPA Breaks The Internet from Fight for the Future on Vimeo.

Some of you may not have heard of SOPA and Protect IP legislation currently making it’s way through the system. I’m not going to go into an indepth explanation as plenty of information exists already to help clarify the issue at hand. I will say that I don’t support these pieces of legislation, they’re incredibly dangerous to free speech on the internet and would set a dangerous standard that would severely limit how we do business online, how we create and how we express ourselves.  I urge you all to read as much as you can on these issues and then contact your representatives in government and let them know how you feel.
