The geeks have spoken, but now it is your turn. We realized the dangers and spoke out as early as we could, but even that was too late, and we need EVERYONE to realize this bill is dangerous to the future of the internet. If this law is passed, it will affect EVERYONE. Please call your representatives NOW.

The bill would allow the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), as well as copyright holders, to seek court orders against websites accused of enabling or facilitating copyright infringement. Guess what? ALL of the websites you use on a daily basis for social interaction, whether it be Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Reddit, etc, allow user content, and this law would effectively make it impossible for them to operate because they enable their users the ability to post whatever they want. They have no way of guaranteeing their content won't contain infringing material, so how could they possibly run a website based entirely on user-contributed content?

Stop taking the internet for granted or we won't have it much longer. As someone who builds websites, if this law is passed, I will never again build a website that allows users to post anything. Even Google and Facebook won't be able to afford the lawsuits that follow.
