SOPA, or Stop Online Piracy Act, is a United States bill that, if legalized, would censor information on the internet. The citizens of the United States were able to prevent SOPA from being passed last year, but the bill is back. This time, SOPA would make it a felony to stream copyrighted material. People could be thrown in jail for acts such as:
- writing fanfiction
- drawing fanart
- playing a song in a video
- covering a song
If you are an American who feels SOPA would stifle basic rights, please take only a moment to sign this petition.
