How You can Help Block SOPA (Detailed Instructions)

In this video, Peter G McDermott shows you what steps you need to take to help block SOPA from passing into law. Please listen carefully and follow the detailed instructions.

From Wikipedia.org: “The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), also known as H.R. 3261, is a bill that was introduced in the United States House of Representatives on October 26, 2011, by House Judiciary Committee Chair Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX) and a bipartisan group of 12 initial co-sponsors. The bill expands the ability of U.S. law enforcement and copyright holders to fight online trafficking in copyrighted intellectual property and counterfeit goods.[2] Now before the House Judiciary Committee, it builds on the similar PRO-IP Act of 2008 and the corresponding Senate bill, the PROTECT IP Act.[3]”

If you’ve watched any of the videos on our website, YouTube or UStream, you’re probably aware that this is currently a one-man show and the content is constantly—albeit slowly—improving and turning into the quality that we ultimately seek. As the designer, content writer, producer and personality of all of this content, I see a lot of opportunity for younger writers, contributors, designers and even students to offer their expertise and become part of the community.

 

You might have noticed that there are links for Advertisers and Sponsors on the website. Currently the only revenue that we generate comes from Google Ads and that revenue comes at a crawling pace. Currently we average about $.01/day. So, over the course of a year, I think we should clear about $3.65 if my math is right.
