Sopa | Pipa & American Censorship

·

· What’s this about?

Congress is trying to pass legislation that threatens free speech and innovation on the Internet, under the banner of anti-piracy efforts.

· What’s at risk?

The proposed infrastructure would damage the security of the Internet and allow the government extensive censorship abilities.

· The result?

Your favorite websites, both inside and outside the US, could be blocked based on a single infringement claim, without any due process of law.

· How is it done?

The US will be able to block a site’s web traffic, ad traffic and search traffic using the same website censorship methods used by China, Iran and Syria.
