Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, writes:
This week, a bill that would create America’s first Internet censorship system is going to a full committee for a vote, and is likely to pass.
He is referring to the “Stop Online Piracy” act and the related “Protect IP” act. Links to information and analysis concerning these bills, for which heavy lobbying activities are underway, here.
This is dangerous stuff, and, as Tim notes, people need to be contacting their CongressCreatures now.
