So I recently read an article that would virtually start censoring the internet.
I became curious as to why I didn't hear about this until today, considering its been an Congress's to do list.
I mean if anyone has been on tumblr you will noticed when you first get on the site, almost everything is censored, in order to get users to know and take action.
I'm curious of what others think and to raise awareness

here are some articles:

I think there are two threads about this subject already going.

Here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-740677/online-piracy-act-protect-our-websites

And here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-740607/developments-in-us-laws-on-internet-usage

Not that it isn't an important subject, mind you.
