Hollywood Admits It: Goal Is China-Style Internet Censorship
Amazing! On the eve of the House Judiciary Committee vote, the head of the Motion Picture Assocation of America admitted that he's pushing a censorship regime just like China's. According to Variety, he said:
"When the Chinese told Google that they had to block sites or they couldn't do [business] in their country, they managed to figure out how to block sites."
The Stop Online Piracy Act would require sites to censor their users' posts (or shut down), let the government block your access to websites, and put people in jail for uploading unlicensed content (ie, cover band performances). The House Judiciary Committee is expected to vote NEXT WEEK. Please tell your lawmakers that this isn't China -- it's America, where the First Amendment is supposed to rule the day.
Please fill out the form at right to ask your lawmakers to oppose the Internet censorship.
