"SOPA Motto" gives power back to the people

See also

By now you've heard of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) introduced by the House of Representatives and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) from the Senate. With SOPA being percieved as the greater evil of the two, there was a heavy amount of protest across the internet which included major websites like Google, Reddit, Craigslist. Even adult oriented websites like Xvideos chimed in with their two cents on the issue. The loudest voice besides the millions of Twitter and Facebook users was Wikipedia.

The world's sixth most visited website was blacked out for twenty four hours in opposition to SOPA and PIPA. Instead of the regular landing page, the site listed information on the bills and a tool that users could use to find out whice Representatives and Senators to contact to voice their opinion.

Hip-hop also took to the internet to make their opposition known. Urging fans to get educated on the issue and let their voices be heard. Columbus' Themidas Touch is one of those artists. With his "SOPA Motto" he gets to the heart of the issue and paints a vivid picture of what the world could be like if these acts ever get passed.

For the moment, both SOPA and PIPA have been tabled, but that doesn't mean that they won't come back modified and stronger than ever.
