Remember when you thought it was safe to go back in the water? Well, less than four months after the largest online protest in history, SOPA is back. Just like Jaws. And just like Jaws, it’s ready to take a bite out of your freedom and mine.
If you weren’t with me during the last protest, this article will bring you up to date. When the proposed legislation was dropped, last January, I wrote about it in a post titled SOPA and PIPA dropped…for now. “Now” didn’t last very long…but I didn’t expect it to.
That’s what happens when there’s lots of money being put to work to promote the interests of corporations over the interests of people like you and me.
