Infographic: How The SOPA Bill Could Destroy The Internet

Congress is currently debating a bill that could potentially destroy the internet as we know it.

The Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA) is a bill that is allegedly aimed at preventing non-legit sites from streaming copyrighted material.

You’ll be joining thousands of concerned students and citizens , as well as dozens of websites including this one, Reddit, Mozilla, Tumblr, and more. If we’re loud enough, hopefully we can beat down the media industry’s bribe-laden bill and keep our internet.
