Despite my lack of high traffic, I am choosing to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA.) I've already contacted my Reps and Sens and voiced my concern. You should act as well. Let site owners regulate themselves. Force congress to enact targeted legislation, not blanket censorship to combat an overblown Hollywood/RIAA problem. No one likes to have their work stolen, but censoring the internet is not the way to do it. Let's be smarter about this.
Visit http://www.congress.org/congressorg/directory/congdir.tt and look up who represents you, and let them know that you are against this legislation and you encourage them to find smarter alternatives to stopping online piracy.
