I don’t like to use A Class as a political forum, but this issue affects not only this blog, but the entire Internet.
The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA) are up for vote by the Senate, starting on January 24. If either of these pass, it could mean a massive shift in the way we communicate and share information. These bills allow for government censorship and would require US Internet service providers to monitor everything their users upload, download and share. This could severely affect all of the automotive, design, fashion and lifestyle blogs, you and I enjoy visiting on a daily basis.
