End Piracy, Not Liberty

This is not my usual post.  These are not usual times. 

As a writer, I have a vested interest in keeping copyrighted material protected.  But I am more horrified by the specter of censorship.  Accordingly, I am reposting information from Google and a link to their page so that you might join me in letting the US Congress know that you, too, are against censorship.

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.
The Senate will begin voting on January 24th. Please let them know how you feel. Sign this petition urging Congress to vote NO on PIPA and SOPA before it is too late.
Please follow this link and sign the petition.
