Today is American Censorship Day, as Congress holds hearings on the first internet censorship system. The RIAA, MPAA, and the rest of Big Content have spent $91 million lobbying the government to pass really terrible bills that would put the US on the same page as China, Iran, and Libya. It would break the internet as we know it and is opposed by Google, Twitter, Tumblr, Foursquare, Kickstarter, and a long list of other tech companies, lawyers, and (thankfully) some politicians like Ron Wyden and Ron Paul. Write to Congress TODAY and tell them not to break the internet to protect the outdated business models of old media.
