Protest SOPA and PIPA

The Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect Intellectual Property Act, (collectively know as the "Turn the First Amendment over to Private Parties Acts") have the support of Minnesota's two senators. The DMCA has already chilled free speech and taken a big bite out of fair use for political comment and parody.

The next time that Al Franken talks about his support of "net neutrality," I submit that the proper response from you is a hollow, derisive laugh.

If you follow the first link above, you'll see the President Obama has signaled some opposition to SOPA and PIPA. Help make him mean it, and do what you can to turn Franken - and even the glacial Klobuchar around.

I've also read some Twitter activity in the last day or so that suggests that the legislation is, for the moment, shelved.

This is the only post at the Stool today.
