Why This Artist is Against SOPA

UPDATE:  Congress has put SOPA, PIPA on the back burner for now.  Thanks to everyone who wrote their senator, congressman, or spread the word!

Go check out wikipedia today (Jan 18) .  Nearly all of it's content has been blacked out in protest of SOPA, a bill which would do great harm to internet freedom of speech.  As an artist, I care about copyright infringement, but I don't think this is the answer.  This bill is not well thought through and could have unintended consequences.  Imagine YOUR blog being shut down because someone else posted restricted material on blogger!  Under this bill it could happen!   If you don't want to see this bill pass please write your congressmen and senators and tell them NOT to vote yes on this bill.   Learn more here.
