SOPA – One Small Step against Piracy; One Giant Leap for Censorship

Supporters of SOPA/PIPA came out in the news today calling yesterday’s Internet Blackout protest a manipulative prank. Prank or no prank, it got the point across. Meeting a black screen of death – or of censorship – has led many legislators to rethink their position on SOPA/PIPA. ProPublica.org created this nifty visual of who supports and who opposes the bill as of January 18th (pre-Blackout) and January 19 (post-Blackout). There are still many legislators that haven’t made their opinions known. We can hope that the shift as a result of the Blackout is a trend that will continue.

And for the latest updates on how the legislators are lining up, ProPublica.org has thisfor you.

If this bill passes, it will be one small step against piracy and one giant leap for censorship.
