|WEB GOES ON STRIKE|
January 18, 2012 websites poised to create the largest internet protest.
EXETER, NH - 1/17/12- Well-known websites are poised to create a mass blackout tomorrow, Wednesday the 17th of January 2012. Their efforts are to send a strong message to Congress to prevent censorship on the internet. We are sending out this message to you because we all rely on the internet (probably in more ways than we are aware!) so we strongly urge you to do what you need to do on the 'net tonight - check your online bill pay, finish off a article for your blog (Wordpress has committed to blacking out tomorrow), book appointments (some of us use online services to book appointments), etc. No one is really sure of the scope or the impact, but we just thought you might want to be aware and be prepared. It is set to end by 8pm tomorrow evening.
The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) is meant to penalize companies and users from streaming unauthorized media (music, videos). You can learn more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_Online_Piracy_Act
(But read it tonight, Wiki is said to go "down" tomorrow too! The Protect IP Act, or PIPA
is also set to be voted on. There is plenty of biased (and unbiased) information out there, so google to your heart's content. Just be sure to do it before 8am tomorrow morning. :)
