What you need to know about SOPA (anti-piracy bill)

Despite this bill's utter importance, it has received much less notice to the internet public than it should. Basically, this bill has been written so broadly that instead of its original understanding to control internet piracy, it has come to being a complete censorship of the internet. For all of you who use Youtube, Tumblr, Facebook, even Google, and other sites that feature freedom to post and share copyrighted content, that means those sites will either be censored into un-useability, or completely taken off with Internet. Even our beloved tropicalfishkeeping.com could be taken down or censored merely because people in this off-topic part of the forum are discussing Animal Planet's "Tanked". Please, take time to spread the word of this potential end to the Internet as we know it, understand that we as internet-users must fight this bill.

This is not something to be idle about, this is completely serious and the chance of this bill passing is much too likely for us to ignore it.

Please watch these videos and visit American Censorship Day November 16 - Join the fight to stop SOPA, show your opposition to this bill!
