UPDATE: House Judiciary, SOPA

Tomorrow morning, the House Judiciary Committee plan to continue their markup of H.R. 3261, the "Stop Online Piracy Act" or SOPA.

SOPA threatens the very existence of the internet we know today.  If it passed, not only would it be the end of so-called 'piracy,' it would shut down any site that links to the illegally posted copyrighted content — that means Google, Youtube, Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, you name a site, there's a chance it could be shut down by SOPA.

In fact, in Forbes today, a blogger mentioned a petition on WhiteHouse.gov received over 25,000 signatures in opposition in only two days!  The best part is that whomever created the petition linked to a copyrighted image, meaning the WhiteHouse.gov petition site would be in violation of SOPA if the bill were law today.

UPDATE: The hearing has been postponed, keep up the pressure!
