"The American Civil Liberties Union, Free Press and the Save the Internet campaign have made it clear that the Stop Online Piracy Act poses a genuine threat to human rights advocacy and whistleblowing on the web. Yet, the measure continues to advance in the U.S. House, even as a Senate variation on it, the Protect IP Act, has been put on hold by Oregon Democrat Ron Wyden. That's why internet sites have been going dark in protest today. If the bill is stopped, it will be by political action. But that won't be easy." (01/18/12)
