STRIKE AGAINST the Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA)

Many websites are blacked out today to protest proposed U.S. legislation that threatens internet freedom: the Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). From personal blogs to giants like WordPress and Wikipedia, sites all over the web — including this one — are asking you to help stop this dangerous legislation from being passed.

I didn't get the process figured out in time to black my website and blog out because I'm a writing fool, and worked the day and night away . . . but I do support this action and hope you will too!

If you're in the USA, there are many links available online to sign petitions or to help you contact your Congresscritters and Representatives. If you are outside the USA. you can petition the US State Department at American Censorship.org

  1. Hello Kate,

    I see you are a new member of my blog. Welcome. It also turns out I have two books that are in need of proofing. What would you charge, at about 130,000 words?
    I would not have asked, but it seems you offer the service, and I saw the Green Man at the end of your last post. Blessings,

    William Hunter Duncan
