SOPA and PIPA OPPOSITION
Unites Americans across Party Lines
A typical subject often becomes a partisan issue. Unfortunately for EVERYONE, the evolution of SOPA and PIPA introduced many unwanted complications. Please accept the plethora of links to follow the discussion.

Supposedly, President Obama has stated that he would VETO the bills.  Lots of commentary but I have't found an exact quote from him.  If you know a link to his actual words - please leave it in the comments for everyone to see. Thanks.

AR's own Fred Griffin's post is very complete.  You may use the AR SEARCH function to find others. Today is my third post on the subject.

Some other areas to review -
“We have increasingly heard from a large number of constituents and other stakeholders with vocal concerns about possible unintended consequences of the proposed legislation, including breaches in cybersecurity, damaging the integrity of the Internet, costly and burdensome litigation, and dilution of First Amendment rights,” the senators said in the letter. Signers of the letter include Senators Charles Grassley (R-IA), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Jeff Sessions (R-AL), John Cornyn (R-TX) Mike Lee (R-UT), and Tom Coburn (R-OK). 
YAHOO  

And from Simon Phipps 
I believe it is very important to disprove the assertion being made ... that the only opponents of this bill are Google and its peers. Anyone who understands the Internet can see that the provisions in SOPA/PIPA are far too broad and over-reaching ... 

And many more voices are available for you to read about this issue including Nate Nelson:
Looking at the reasons to VETO based on re-election issues.

Thanks for your attention to this matter.
YOUR ONLINE FREEDOM (as well as mine!) IS AT RISK!!

Have a happy day _

PS  I believe that much wisdom and many good ideas may be found in the ActiveRain Community Guideleines.  For me, the Guidelines offer important suggestions and with the guideline quoted here - I was reminded to network with my fellow members.

 Posting is a mega "networking" opportunity - isn't it?

Lyn - I don't know a lot about SOPA and PIPA except it's not good for our Internet accessibility. However, I'll check out the links and thanks for including them. We all should be in the know when our rights are at risk!

Lynn,

I think we will defeat these two but others will appear to take their place.  We need to remain vigilant.

DEVEN - Thanks for sopping by.

PATRICK - On AR we are so lucky to have many members help us keep up with things - aren't we?

MARGE - Yes, other bills will appear and hopefully, focus on the movie piracy issue and not on subjecting us to un-American principles.  With these two - my site could be shut down until I proved I wasn't connected to the site being investigaged - guilty until proven innocent.

Have a happy day -
Lynn
