Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA)

Librarians… are you aware of this?  If no, READ!

I will not even pretend to be an expert on this issue, but I would like to share some links which have been floating around some social media circles regarding the proposed Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).

 Michael Geist is sounding alarm bells regarding the proposed act.  The vote has been delayed until January.

This is a good, fairly neutral video which will provide an overview of the effect of the bills application will have on websites which are targeted.

Finally, 439 major corporations/organizations are in support of the legislation.  Find out who they are here.
