There are currently two acts in US Congress that have potential to gravely affect our liberty and ability to express ourselves openly on the internet. The internet is a way to convey information, search for information, and to express our views. However, in an attempt to prevent piracy and plagiarism from occurring on the internet, Congress wants to give the Department of Justice the power to close any website that they suspect of piracy. Here at Admix Web, we believe that all content should and must be original, or you must give recognition to the owner of the idea. In act, we have ourselves been victims and piracy when other blogs and websites have tried to pass our content off as their content. However, we do not believe that these two acts are the way to end piracy on the internet. These two acts only serve to suppress our liberties and two wrongs never make a right.
Moreover, we believe that the first amendment protects our freedom of speech, and that the right to express ourselves without undue infringement from the government is one of the liberties that make this country great! If you would like to read more about these two acts, please visit Google SOPA and PIPA and you can sign a Petition against these two acts as well. Lets show Congress we oppose these acts, and hope they find an alternate way of stopping piracy on the web.
