Stop SOPA

I may not live in the USA, but SOPA is of great concern to me nevertheless. It should be to you too.

From DYN.com:

Are you familiar with the Great Firewall Of China? Sometimes referred to as the Golden Shield project, it’s a Chinese government censorship and Internet surveillance project kicked off in 1998 and put into action in 2003. Simply put, it enables the government to restrict what content its citizens can read and view via IP blocking and DNS filtering. If they don’t like a site request a user makes, it won’t get viewed.

Many dismiss what’s happening in China and chalk to up to their communist political system. That could never happen in a free speech-driven, rights for all society like we have in the United States, right?

If the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) introduced this week gets enacted into law, things could change negatively for Americans which is why Dyn opposes the bill.

If you’d like to learn more about the outrageously undemocratic lunacy that is SOPA check out my modest little diigo list. To sign the petition against it, check out stopcensorship.org.

  1. The only sopa I like is the kind they serve at Federico’s – either menudo or posole. #yeahIwentthere #Mexicansouprocks
