Congress is about to pass internt censorship, even though the vast majority of Americans opposed. The senate is scheduled to vote on the internet censorship bill on TUESDAY JANUARY 24TH and unless we can find 41 senators to block the vote, its going to pass!

If it passes no more ( think no more) facebook,craigslist, wikipedia, google, yahoo, ebay, aol, twitter, LinkedIn, Mozilla, etsy,

Imagine a world in which any intellectual property holder can, without ever appearing before a judge or setting foot in a courtroom, shut down any website's online advertising programs and block access to credit card payments. The credit card processors and the advertising networks would be required to take quick action against the named website; only the filing of a “counter notification” by the website could get service restored.

It's the world envisioned by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) in today's introduction of the Stop Online Piracy Act in the US House of Representatives. This isn't some off-the-wall piece of legislation with no chance of passing, either; it's the House equivalent to the Senate's PROTECT IP Act, which would officially bring Internet censorship to the US as a matter of law.
