Call Now to Stop SOPA, the Internet Blacklist Bill
The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) is a dangerous bill that would give the Department of Justice and big content unprecedented power to censor the Internet. There's a critical hearing this week about the bill, part of big content's effort to steamroll the bill through Congress, which means we have no time to lose. SOPA's supporters are desperate to get this bill through quickly by convincing Congress there's no real opposition to it. We know better, but we need to make our voices heard loud and clear:Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I am a constituent of [Congressperson's name].
I think H.R.3261, the Stop Online Piracy Act, is a bad idea, and I hope my Representative will stand against it.
This bill is overbroad, and could be used as a tool for online censorship. It would be bad for online innovation, and could be misused to take down legitimate online speech. Even worse, it creates a bad precedent internationally for fragmenting the Internet.
Thank you for your consideration, and for acting against this dangerous bill.
Help us spread the word!
Once you've called your Representative, urge others to take a stand by sharing on Facebook and Twitter. Check out our Toolkit for Anti-SOPA Activism to find other creative ways of speaking out. And remember to send a letter to Congress against this legislation.
UPDATE: SOPA is in "markup" tomorrow (the time when changes can be made). It is absolutely essential that you call and voice your vehement disapproval for this bill, and let your rep know that you -- and we all -- will vote them out if they vote against free speech in this or any other way.
