The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and CEA's Innovation Movement are under a 24-hour web blackout in protest of proposed legislation: Oppose PIPA and SOPA


 
CEA and Innovation Movement members,
Stand Up for Innovation, Oppose PIPA and SOPA.
The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and CEA's Innovation Movement are under a 24-hour web blackout in protest of proposed legislation – the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the U.S. House of Representatives, and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) in the U.S. Senate.
The bills ostensibly go after Internet pirates, but are so broadly worded as to implicate legitimate businesses. If passed, they will mean more litigation and damage to the innovation economy.
Take Action
While SOPA is temporarily stalled in the House, the Senate plans to bring PIPA for a vote next week, even though most Americans are opposed.
Stand up for our innovation economy: contact your Senators today and tell them to say NO to PIPA!
