I’ve heard a lot of discussion about “SOPA” lately. SOPA stands for “Stop Online Piracy Act”. Apparently, tomorrow, numerous websites will be “blacked out” in protest of this bill.(Including the very popular wikipedia)
Due to mid-term exams this week, I really don’t have much time to research this…so, I’ll give you the information to learn about it yourself.
“Well John, why did you post about this?” , Because a lot of people don’t know about this, and I just want you to be aware.
Here’s the bill:http://www.opencongress.org/bill/112-h3261/show
