Strike Against Web Censorship!

Tomorrow from 8am-8pm Eastern, We Are Librarians will be blacked out in solidarity with the many, many other sites striking against web censorship bills!

Although SOPA may be dead (for now), PIPA is still on the Senate’s agenda for January 24th. And although support for PIPA appears to be withering, we still need to demonstrate to lawmakers just how dangerous similar legislation (i.e., abuse of copyright law) can be for intellectual freedom.

We will be joining Wikipedia, WordPress, Reddit and many others for tomorrow’s strike. For details on how to join us and temporarily black out your site, check out sopastrike.com for instructions.

See you on the other side!
