Please Help Stop SOPA/PIPA
omOriginals Marketing! rarely engages in politics.  The act if passed would greatly reshape the internet as we know it.
WordPress officially released its stance on SOPA/PIPA – the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect IP Act – which will soon come up for vote in the US legislature.  We ask that you learn more and Help Stop SOPA/PIPA.

Be sure to watch the short video.

PROTECT IP / SOPA Breaks The Internet from Fight for the Future on Vimeo.

We agree with those that have come out publicly against these bills, and we’d like to encourage you to join in the fight to stop them from becoming law.

For our non-American friends, the effects of these laws would most likely be felt around the world, making this a global issue of great importance to our web community.

You would think that laws that have such cute and friendly names as Stop Piracy would be good for everyone, but most of us that make a living working with content on the web have major concerns.
