Stand up for what you believe

Jan 18, 2012 by

The government is trying to push through two pieces of legislation aimed at curbing Internet piracy. Both of these proposals would do little to effectively combat piracy but would censor the internet in a harmful way. It would also cause great harm to companies working on the Internet today and any young companies trying to start their business online.

These bills are brought forward from Hollywood, an industry that refuses to adapt to new technology and would rather just sue competition out of business verses innovate.

I have been fortunate to work both in Hollywood and within the technology sector and can tell you stories first hand of these lawsuits that have destroyed good companies.

I firmly believe the Internet should not be censored. I also believe that hollywood lobbyists should not be allowed to buy the laws they want passed.

Take one minute today and call and wrote your senator and congressman. Simply tell them that you do not want the internet censored and you do not support SOPA or PIPA. Tell them that if they vote for these bills you will not vote for them.

Its just that simple. I have already called. Please take a minute and stand up for what you believe in.

Here is what you can do right now.

Call your local representative & Sign the online petition
