SOPA

Stop SOPA

It is not a long, upholstered couch with a back and two arms or raised ends that sits within the walls of your comfortable living room.  I believe it is a sofa?  This one is SOPA - Stop Online Piracy Act.  I would want to link the article in Wikipedia but the site will be having a blackout in protest to this censorship.  So what is it?  For sure it's not as comfortable as your sofa in your living room.  Here's the gist:  there is a bill in the U.S. Senate that if passed would cripple our freedom to publish right here in the web.  Still don't get it?  Fight for the Future does it better with this video right after the jump.

But I am outside the US?  What it does have to do with me?  Here's an infographic on how it affects everyone, yes including you.

How does SOPA work?
