This popped up on the side of SF the other day as I was surfing the site.
Yes it's a tad old, but even still... it runs till the 30th.
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Stop the E-PARASITE Act.
This Bill would allow essentially allow A Great Firewall of America and would be a shameful desecration of free speech and any sort of reasonable copyright law. The new Law would allow copyright holders to force websites which have any copyrighted material to be blocked by ISP companies around the country, without requiring that the websites be given time to take the offending material down. It would also put pressure on ISP companies to monitor their users like never before, a gross invasion of privacy. This bill is a direct assault on a free internet and a shameful attempt by copyright lobbyists to destroy net neutrality. Essentially it's a censorship law that would end the internet as we know it in America.

50,000 sure would send the message.
Why it's important?
I would have to take down everything with Copyrighted material in my gallery, as well as everyone else.
I wouldn't even go online much anymore, there just wouldn't seem to be much point.
Once I have an income, I would go online for cheap merchandise, (Plushies) as well, and then drop off again. Well, might even think about getting a regular dial up modem for the internet, no point in broadband if they passed something that strict.
Thanks Very Much For Reading
