Even WordPress hates SOPA

by fmhilton

I’ve posted before about this horrible and invasive bill-and now WordPress has officially stated their position on it:

Help Stop SOPA

Please help us in getting this bill defeated. If you’re in the US, you can write, call or email your Congressman to tell him or her to take steps to guarantee this bill never gets to see the light of day.

You can also go to this site to take alternative steps if you’re not in the US:
Stop American Censorship

There’s not a lot of time left to get this done, (the next hearing is on January 24), so let’s do it!

Let’s roar at the people we elected to do right by us, and make them know we don’t want this bill and to vote against it.

After all, the future of our free speech on the Internet is at stake.

In case you’re wondering how big the opposition to this bill is, check out this official list of individuals and organizations publicly declaring their opposition to SOPA.

It’s a long and distinguished list of the most famous, innovative and respected people in the tech/legal world. If they don’t like this bill, why should we?
