Sopa and Pipa Sitting In A Tree… (Wait can I use that?)


Okay, not really.

But there is legislation right now that could make this sort of thing possible. You may think your government is above censoring comic strip,
but actually, it’s happened before.

Please take a moment to read up on some more current concerns:

If you’re not aware of SOPA / PIPA, there are articles on wikipedia here:
Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) | Protect IP Act (PIPA)

If you want a tl;dr version, go here.

If you want to know who supports, who opposes, and who receives money, go here.

If you want to make a difference, here’s what you can do:

1) Look up your congressperson or senator, and see if he/she supports or opposes.
For SOPA: projects.propublica.org/sopa/
For PIPA: projects.propublica.org/sopa/pipa#roll_call
2) Click the appropriate picture to pull up contact information.
3) Write a handwritten letter describing why you’re unhappy. This is the best way to get their attention.
4) If you don’t have time for that, call their office and politely but firmly express your complaint, specifically mentioning their support for SOPA (house of reps) or PIPA (senate).
