Broadly worded bills such as the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA) could very easily result in the end of Operation 100 News and anything else on the internet that could be considered "controversial." This could also mean the end of websites that are full of user generated content, including Twitter and Facebook.
Please read a few of the links provided below for additional information, do some research on the potential implications of such legislation. Contact your Representatives in Congress and let your voice be heard. Protect the freedom of the Internet.
