Do Not Censor Me

The First Amendment falls apart when government censorship threatens to put purveyors of legal content under scrutiny for any possible trace of copyright infringement.

Censorship silences.
The internet works partly because it gives people who have been silenced in other ways a voice.  It doesn't matter who you are, where you come from, the color of your skin, your faith, orientation, gender, or disability- sites that allow us to share content allow us to come together on an even playing field.

Say no to SOPA, contact your congressman and be heard.  Don't let sites dedicated to allowing you to share your own voice be threatened with legal action for the potential misuse of others.  Remember, congress only has the power to vote in favor of corporations over free speech when we vote for them in the first place.

I, for one, will not vote for any supporter of SOPA.

 See for more details. Thank you.
