Join the largest online protest in history.

Today is the Internet Blackout Day in protest against Senate Bill 968: the Protect IP Act that is set to go before US Senate next week.

Internet freedom is at risk if the Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA) in the Senate and the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the House are passed.

Read SOPA H.R.3261 – Stop Online Piracy Act – on OpenCongress · Read PIPA S.968 – PROTECT IP Act of 2011 on OpenCongress

Hopefully a victory? SOPA has been reportedly shelved until further notice. 

 However, on January 23rd Senate will be back in session and getting ready to vote on the Protect IP Act, SOPA’s sister bill. Call Senators on the 25th and voice your opposition to this censorship legislation.

Not only is Penny Auction Watch participating in today’s protest –  Over 6,000 other websites from personal blogs to Wikipedia, Google, Flickr, reddit, Tucows, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Mozilla are standing up and speaking out.

We are asking you to educate yourself and take action right now to help stop this dangerous legislation from being passed.

If passed the face of the Internet will be forever changed and even sites like ours that host forums and information will be at risk of shutdown, and operators imprisoned.

Take action.  

Contact Congress – Write  or Call your Senator or Representative

Right now, before it’s too late!
