Stand Up for the Internet; Stand Up to Congress
The Internet has created millions of jobs, trillions in GDP growth, and expanded economic opportunities for millions of Americans. Yet, a time when our country needs economic drivers like never before, Congress has introduced legislation that would almost certainly curtail the innovation and economic promises that only a free and open Internet can yield.
Tell Congress that the "Stop Online Piracy Act" (H.R. 3261) and the "Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act of 2011" (S.968) do not work for you, for the Internet, or for our economy.
We cannot afford legislation that is crafted so broadly that it burdens the effectiveness of the Internet as a job creating engine that produces crucial innovation and growth. Nothing short of our financial global competitiveness is at stake, and we must act now to stop Congress from cutting the legs out from under the Internet as we have come to know it.
