You may have noticed some of your favorite websites are not working today.
That's because this day, January 18, is the day that the internet fights back against two new bills being introduced.
These two bills are SOPA and PIPA
SOPA stands for Stop Online Piracy Act
PIPA stands for Protect Intellectual Property Act
It can be a bit confusing to really understand these bills....so here is the main point:
If these bills are turned into laws then THE INTERNET WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN.
I encourage you to read as much as you can about SOPA and PIPA.
Here's a good article from the Washington Post.
Here's another one from the NY Times.
There is news about SOPA and PIPA everywhere...so educate yourself and take a stand.
Here at Cool Like Pie, we are clearly with the protesters.
If SOPA and PIPA were to become law...we would be forced to shut down this site.
Where do you stand?
