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.

@randomfox Occupy movements are springing up everywhere. They are peaceful, and yet the police brutalize them. The government is not in a good state right now. T_T
