In solidarity with the many websites protesting the Stop Online Piracy
Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA)–those sites we rely on every day
for news, entertainment, information, and community–Cool Mom Picks will
not be posting today.
We are deeply concerned about these
well-intended but wildly misguided acts, which will go to a Senate vote
in the coming weeks. They would not only threaten free speech, but the
Internet as we know it, including user-generated content sites like
Etsy, Wikipedia, Vimeo, Twitter, eBay, LinkedIn and Flickr.
For more information on the Stop Online Piracy Act, please visit SopaStrike.com, follow #SopaStrike on Twitter, or search the web. The most thorough info about it is on Wikipedia – but they’ll be dark today.
Please consider calling your Senators today and letting them know how you feel.
