Slogen is to Stop SOPA/PIPA
SOPA & PIPA are 2 new bills of anti-piracy Legislation in United States and fullform of SOPA and PIPA are:
  • SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act)
  • PIPA (Protect IP Act)
These potential bills will allow the US government to block Americans from visiting certain websites.
Similar to ‘The Great Firewall of China’ and countries such as Iran and Syria, SOPA will allow the government the ability to control and censor the internet by forcing internet service providers to firewall websites and IP addresses.
Unfortunately SOPA states that websites and services that enable people to bypass censorship will themselves be censored.

Therefore if SOPA passes, online anonymity services such as Proxy Sites will be at high risk of being banned in the US altogether, unless they censor their networks to comply.

Although the likes of Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, Mozilla, Wikipedia, and other influential companies are strongly opposing the bill, SOPA still has a lot of support and financial backing.

Please take a moment out of your day to learn more about SOPA and help protect the future of your internet.
