bronies,

one of the most important factors in the creation and continuation of our community is our freedom to share and create works based on copyrighted material.

a bill has been written which threatens this freedom. it hasn’t passed yet, but if it does:

it would allow the government to ORDER internet service providers to block websites containing anything the bill deems “infringing”.

individuals may be sent to prison for up to 5 years for streaming a copyrighted work.

many websites (including this one) would be at risk of being shut down.

this bill is essentially an attempt to censor the internet.

more information about this can be found here: http://americancensorship.org/
