Readers, friends, spin enthusiasts and music lovers alike:
SOPA AND PIPA WILL AFFECT YOU IF THESE TWO BILLS ARE PASSED THROUGH CONGRESS.
If you have no idea what I am talking about, then you need to read this Wikipedia article.
After you are done reading that Wikipedia article and have a brief, general, impartial understanding of what SOPA and PIPA are, think about what a world of CENSORED INTERNET would mean for us.
First off, you wouldn’t even be able to READ anymore Wikipedia articles. Wikipedia would be gone. Youtube would be gone. If you upload a video of your child singing along to a Rihanna song, maybe you’ll get sued. The Pirate Bay would be gone. Reddit would be gone. Firefox might be gone, and when you go to search something in Google (who knows if that would still exist), ONLY WEBSITES THE GOVERNMENT APPROVE OF WOULD SHOW UP.
WE ARE NOT CHINA! OR MALAYSIA! OR IRAN! THIS IS AMER’KA! We are granted with the privilege of FREEDOM OF PRESS and FREEDOM OF SPEECH and both SOPA and PIPA would be a complete infringement on those rights.
TAKE ACTION TODAY! Sites like Google, Reddit, Wikipedia, and even your favorite work procrastination sites like Cheezeburger are “blacked out” today (censored) to protest the bills and to show how crappy the internet would become if passed. Who knows how it would affect your favorite SPINNING MUSIC BLOG (cough, cough) and how would you listen to songs that your favorite blogger (cough, cough) wants to share with YOU if sites like soundcloud and youtube are GONE?! (womp womp).
Tell your friends. This is important.
