Care of my friend Schmutzie who is presently blacked out in support:
"Due to proposed legislation in the United States (presently SOPA and PROTECT IP), the internet we know and love could change across world borders for the worst. Even though SOPA is proposed legislation in the United States, it has provisions that would treat all Canadian IP addresses as if they were under U.S. jurisdiction, and so it would affect all Canadians.
Many sites, such as Wikipedia and Reddit, are blacked out for 24 hours in protest.
If you live in the U.S., you can take your stand against its internet blacklist bills here: "
Stop Internet Blacklist Legislation AND SIGN THE PETITION
We have been bound through the decades by the strands of the geopolitical web to the Americans. We do not have to accept their vision, or lack thereof as our model for the interweb. Or are you afraid?
