Five reasons the Internet’s still protesting SOPA and PIPA (Washington Post)

The Oatmeal.com’s to-the-point animation (NSFW, probably)

An Open letter to Washington from Artists and Creators

Today the US Senate is considering legislation that would destroy the free and open Internet. (WWDN)

EFF’s petition

As a creative person, I support people protecting their intellectual property. I don’t support broad, thoughtless, uninformed bills that could be used to crush creativity and censor the internet. There are better, smarter ways to stop online piracy.
