Vitter, Scalise Get Off The SOPA Box
With the Great Wiki Blackout of 2012 in the books, we're left this morning to take stock of what was swallowed by the darkness. Along with many other Congresspeople, two of Louisiana's very own supporters of the Stop Onine Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA) withdrew their co-sponsorship of the bills. U.S. Sen. David Vitter withdrew support for PIPA, calling it a "flawed bill." Likewise, Rep. Steve Scalise said he was backing away from SOPA, but will work for "freedom of the internet." The Founding Fathers were reportedly heard kicking themselves in the grave for failing to think of that one.
Where Louisiana Congresspeople Stand on SOPA and PIPA
You're going to have to work to prove your friends wrong and find weird stuff on the Internets today, as sites like Wikipedia, BoingBoing, Reddit and even the online home of local drama collective The Skin Horse Theater are shut down for a 24 hours (That's about 5 years and 340 days in the Internet time contiuum). While cat pictures on the ICanHasCheezeburger network and Christopher Walken's biography will be missed, the Web geeks - nay, powers - say they're doing it for a good cause. They're mad about the support Congress and Hollywood appear to have thrown behind the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), and its sister bill. the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA). As it turns out, three of our own are among these Congressional supporters.
