You may have heard about PIPA and SOPA over the last couple of days. But what are they?

They are two bills going before Congress. The Protect IP Act (PIPA) is being presented before the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) before Congress.  What do these bills do? In short, they censor the Internet and put harmful regulations on businesses. This bill is aimed to protect copyright infringement, but it’s setup to poison the Internet. The bill has huge lobbying dollars behind it from Hollywood to global media publishers.

Take a look at this short video explaining the harm PIPA and SOPA will do
