Joining the Fight Against Internet Censorship

Tomorrow, January 18th 2012, between 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. From Smiler with Love will join countless other sites in a temporary blackout to protest proposed U.S. legislation that threatens internet freedom: Senate Bill 968, the Protect IP Act.

PROTECT-IP is a bill that has been introduced in the Senate and the House and is moving quickly through Congress. It gives the government and corporations the ability to censor the net, in the name of protecting “creativity”. The law would let the government or corporations censor entire sites– they just have to convince a judge that the site is “dedicated to copyright infringement.”
