Sounds like something you’d name a pair of dogs. It’s not. Two bills are being presented to Congress, Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House and Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate. These bills will work to restrict information and regulate the exchange of ideas on the internet. Censorship of the internet, in a nutshell. This is not only harmful to the landscape of the internet, but the economy as well.
To find out more information on the details of each bill, please visit:
