Sites like this one cannot publicize themselves fairly under the restrictions suggested by the SOPA and PIPA bills. I’ve had a song removed under YouTube’s take-down-first guilty-until-you-swear-you’re-innocent system, and the notion that a Congressman can think that sort of arrangement is constitutionally acceptable is disturbing. I worry that this kind of protesting will continue to fall on deaf ears, but if this does reach an appropriate politician, understand that every day that a non-violent demonstration is ignored is a day closer to the day when our activists decide that we should resort to other measures.
Ask a soldier, protection of the US Constitution is worth dying for.
See you next time.
