It's time to put your PROXY socks on. As I mentioned before this is going to get ugly. Two new pieces of legislation, Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate, and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House have been introduced to stop online piracy. Unfortunately, this type of legislation will introduce harmful regulations to online businesses, and amounts to overall government sponsored censorship.
While good intentions may apply to this type of legislation, the implementation will be disastrous to the Internet and to small business. I highly encourage you to oppose this legislation by writing your representative in Congress. Keep the internet free and clear of additional government regulations.
As you may have noticed today many popular Internet sites staged a "virtual strike" today offering limited or no web service in opposition to SOPA and PIPA. This included Wikipedia, MoveOn, Reddit, Mozilla and Google.
