Stand up against SOPA and PIPA!

Google and Wikipedia along with hundreds of organizations and millions of people are speaking up against SOPA and PIPA. Many organizations are staging online 'blackout' protests on January 18, 2012.

Please stand up against these two bills before Congress - Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House. Online behavior and Internet use will be tracked in the names of 'piracy' and 'protection' and severe penalties will be enforced on organizations and people. The Web as we know today will be censored and constrained and severe regulations will be imposed on online business/organizations. This will vastly restrict how the Internet is viewed, thwarting collaboration and digital progress.

Millions of Internet users, leaders, organizations, and people already oppose SOPA and PIPA. But more help is needed! The Senate will begin voting on January 24th unless we stop them.
Use Wikipedia to contact your local representatives or sign the petition at Google.
