Internet Strike Today

Today thousands of sites will go dark to protest SOPA and PIPA. The Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House of Representatives — grants copyright owners unprecedented power to block or shut down websites entirely for copyright infringements that are already being successfully addressed via existing laws. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is planning to proceed with a vote on PIPA in the Senate on January 24.
I’d like to ask every one of you-if you haven’t already to get involved and speak out against these two bills. Many Etsy sellers depend on Etsy for their livelihoods this is too important for us to remain silent. Please go here to: The Protect Innovation website and send a letter to Congress.
