THIS IS VERY URGENT AND NOT A JOKE! ALSO DON'T GOOF OFF!!!!
I really mean it! What would 你 be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would 你 be able to do if 写作 fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would 你 do if it's illegal to do a cover of your 最喜爱的 song on YouTube? What would 你 do if downloading things from the internet (music, movies, TV episodes, etc) became illegal? What would 你 do if SOPA/TPP wins the war and takes away internet freedom? Net Neutrality is already dead so far, we can't risk the freedom of internet from getting killed 由 SOPA/TPP!
SOPA may have been stopped, but large companies with many copyrights are trying to re-institute portions of it under other names and policies. This attempt to protected speech in the name of copyright is unacceptable, and must be resisted.
Secret negotiations to include SOPA provisions in the Trans-Pacific Partnership, lead 由 a former SOPA lobbyist, draconic Notice and Staydown measures that would hold small websites accountable to electronically police media with software they can't afford, and private agreements that could be used to bully small companies into excluding protected content are all being proposed now 由 Big Media.
We encourage the administration to oppose any measures that would deny alleged copyright infringers due process and protect original content!
There's only one way to save our beloved internet and prevent SOPA/TPP from winning the war. All 你 need to do is sign this petition here:
