Why I’m against SOPA, PIPA and internet censorship: #1. I grew up with the “Free Internet.” I do about 90% of my business on the internet with over 40+ active websites promoting real estate in Wisconsin. If I take a picture of a property and there is a billboard in the background that has a copyrighted logo and I post that picture on any of my websites. That website can be taken down under the SOPA law!
To help Raise awareness on this historical issue I’m going to post this page and link it with a series of banners throughout my network of area websites and leave them up until January 24th 2012, which is the day congress will vote to possibly kill the Internet as we know it and a big portion of worldwide Freedom of Speech.
