    Vote NO on PIPA and SOPA (Help take action before it's too late.)

    https://www.google.com/landing/takeaction/

    Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business. Millions of Internet users and entrepreneurs already oppose SOPA and PIPA.

    That didn’t take long.

    A few days ago the news broke that the pending Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) was put on hold until consensus was reached.

    Although the announcement was rather vague, some news sites and blogs declared SOPA dead, or “shelved,” or erased from history.

    Wishful thinking, because today SOPA is back in full force.

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith just announced that the SOPA markup is expected to continue next month.

    “To enact legislation that protects consumers, businesses and jobs from foreign thieves who steal America’s intellectual property, we will continue to bring together industry representatives and Members to find ways to combat online piracy,” Chairman Smith said.

    “Due to the Republican and Democratic retreats taking place over the next two weeks, markup of the Stop Online Piracy Act is expected to resume in February.

    “I am committed to continuing to work with my colleagues in the House and Senate to send a bipartisan bill to the White House that saves American jobs and protects intellectual property.”

    Neo would have to become much more strict to not get removed. If anyone posts anything considered illegal on the site, then it'd be taken down.
