Update: SOPA & PIPA Internet Censorship Legislation


ProBoards would like to sincerely thank all of you that participated in protesting the federal legislation¬†SOPA and PIPA over the last few days. With over 51,000 clicks on our SOPA/PIPA protest banner, we’re thrilled by your activism and your support of continued internet freedoms. You were heard!

The largest online protest in history has fundamentally changed the game. SOPA and PIPA were dropped by Congress today. On January 18th, 13 million of us took the time to tell Congress to protect free speech rights on the internet. Hundreds of millions, maybe a billion, people all around the world saw what we did on Wednesday. See the amazing numbers here.

Your activism may have changed the way people fight for the public interest and basic rights forever.
