Hello all, I'm sure many of you are aware of the SOPA - the Stop Online Piracy Act, heading through the US House of Representatives and it's sister bill PIPA, the Protect-IP Act, heading through the Senate. For those who are unaware and would like to know more, check out the IP & The Interenet Wiki and the SOPA page on wikipedia.
This is a very serious issue and if passed could potentially result in all wiki's being shut down due to fears of legal repercussions along with thousands of other legitimate sites. Sadly I live in Australia so my opinion doesn't count, so I'd like to urge all American users to appear to there local representative to oppose these incredible flawed pieces of policy. I'm sure once you read the information presented you will agree this is something the World would be much better without.13:25, January 1, 2012 (UTC)
