Does the government have the right to censor the internet? Do companies have the right to protect their property and livelihood? These are the questions that most people are talkingGoogle's  protest image about today. What Congress is talking about today. What Wikipedia & Google and other sites are talking about today. Sites are blacking out, going silent or changing logos. It’s a big deal and the right choice needs to be made. I’m talking about Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA).

The way I see it, Companies do have a right to protect themselves but it needs to be done with care. The US government is making a decision that is going to change the US. If we start blocking entire sites, IP’s and regions from the internet we are only blocking them from the US internet. The rest of the world isn’t going to care. They are going to keep sharing and downloading. Companies that want to remain a GLOBAL powerhouse will move to England or some other European company. I bet they are just jumping up and down for joy for the jobs to move over across the big blue. We have one more way to shoot ourselves in the foot because we were shortsighted.

Do your research. Read the proposals. Chime in! Let us know what you think.

Somewhere George Orwell is saying, “See, I told you so!” Haha
