STOP SOPA STOP PIPA

congress is voting this month on certain bills called SOPA and PIPA

they're regarding online piracy websites etc.

if these bills get passed, they will shut down craigslist, ebay, and all other

consumer ran, non profit kinda (small profit rather)

it will give them permission to hijack/hack your computer,

stifling and censoring your search results

basically putting a great deal of restrictions on the freedoms that we have now on the web.

they say sites like craigslist are "stealing" the profits from major corporations by allowing a cheaper alternative to buying and re-using products. ebay has been doing this for years.

but all this can be taken away very soon they are voting on this next week
