A bill in the Senate would let big corporations censor websites at will. It may come up for a vote this month. We have to stop it.
This bill — the Protect IP Act, or PIPA (S. 968) — is intended to address online copyright infringement (just like SOPA, its cousin in the House). But PIPA is so broad it would give corporations the power to shut down websites at will. It would essentially burn down the store to catch a thief.
Free Press is joining more than a dozen organizations in a national call-in day against online censorship to stop PIPA before it comes up for a vote.
Pick up the phone and urge your senator to stand up against online censorship, and against PIPA.
