NEW YORKERS: Do you enjoy watching risqué videos, porn or reading liberal news sites? THE INTERNET AS YOU KNOW IT COULD CHANGE UNLESS YOU ACT TODAY! Rep. Nadler could cast the deciding vote. I just called him and got right through, asking to vote against i'net censorship. I don't think most of you realize how soon this could happen and how drastically it could change the i'net if SOPA passes. Our gov't must really be shady if they want to block our access to info on the web. Please take a little time to familiarize yourself with this and make that call: Representative Jerrold Nadler: (202) 225-5635. I got right through and just urged him to vote against i'net censorship. I don't think I'm mistaken in saying that most of you do not want i'net censorship.


Internet censorship could become law in America sooner than you think.

This Thursday your representative will vote on a bill before the House Judiciary Committee that would give a few corporations unprecedented power to blacklist websites.

Tell Rep. Nadler: Stand with us against the Internet censorship bill.

Rep. Nadler could cast the deciding vote on Thursday. If he votes for the “Stop Online Piracy Act,” or SOPA (H.R. 3261), and it passes through committee, this censorship bill will be one dangerous step closer to law.

That’s why Free Press is standing strong with free speech proponents, small businesses, conservative and liberal advocates, video gamers, librarians, and hundreds of groups across the U.S. in a final push to kill SOPA. We’re asking millions of people to make sure the phones in Congress ring off the hook starting today.

Lobbyists working for the powerful movie and recording industries are pushing Rep. Nadler to vote for SOPA. Now he must hear the truth from ordinary Americans.

Call Rep. Nadler today and tell him that SOPA must be stopped

Please tell him that SOPA allows for the sort of heavy-handed tactics you’d expect to see in China. They have no place in the U.S.

The bill gives government and corporations new powers to overhaul the Internet — and block access to any websites that the industry accuses of copyright infringement. This definition is so broad that we could see criminal penalties imposed against those who post a birthday party video where a copyrighted song is playing in the background.1

SOPA would not only let companies silence websites but would also require all search engines to “de-list” any site in question — making it disappear from the Web altogether.

The consequences for free speech on the Internet are grave.
