Blackout Against SOPA

Posted Jan. 16, 2012 by gtlesica

You might have noticed that the site looks a bit different lately. We are participating in the anti-SOPA/PIPA protest. You can find out more here: http://americancensorship.org/.

But why? Because we're good economists.

Free markets are supposed to be about choice and innovation, not control and preserving the status quo. If passed, SOPA/PIPA will cause serious harm to our economy and will result in no real benefit, even for copyright holders. These bills also jeopardize sites like ours that make use of reasonable exceptions within copyright law to educate students and the public.
