Take Action; Stop SOPA

On Wednesday January 18th 2012, the official website of M2 Motion Pictures will be taken down in protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). These bills threaten the core of what the Internet was founded upon - free speech.

I know that the only person who frequents this website is... well, me, but that doesn't change the fact that M2 Motion Pictures will be affected if these bills pass. Something as simple as a licensed song being used for 14 seconds in a video could result in a heavy fine.

If you want more information, please visit Stop American Censorship. They've been some of the most active protestors of SOPA since it was first brought to light.

Hopefully the collective protests of websites around the 'net will send a blunt message to the people of Congress.
