Protest Internet Censorship

submitted by qntmfred on Wednesday, January 18 at 10:38 AM

Today many websites and companies are protesting the recent proposed legislation (SOPA and PIPA) allegedly designed to combat online piracy. Many have pointed out that these laws would not only be ineffective, but would ultimately require many websites to monitor and censor their users, or risk being permanently shut down at the government's discretion. Furthermore, it continues a pattern of behavior by our government - our representatives - to maintain control over the internet as a whole for dubious purposes, and which has already been abused.

As a place that has always valued the importance of freedom of speech, and whose existence could be threatened if this legislation (or the inevitable similar but renamed and rebranded legislation) is enacted, TWW has joined this protest.

This black color scheme is awesome. We should descend into totalitarian dystopia more often.
