First SOPA - now PIPA

They never quit. SOPA got enough bad press that the Senate is now trying a new name for the sameold crap:

What’s your position onThe PROTECT IP Act (PIPA)

S. 968: Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act of 2011

Summary: A bill to prevent online threats to economic creativity and theft of intellectual property, and for other purposes. (More Info)

"Online creativity" - read "big business' lock on fair use"...

The First Amendment says we can say anything about anything, at any time. CONgress chooses to ignore that with these bills.
