On Wednesday Jan. 18th thousands of sites will go dark to protest SOPA & PIPA, two US bills racing through Congress that threaten prosperity, online security, and freedom of expression. The White House opposes the bill and announced last Friday that the legislation “reduces freedom of expression, increases cybersecurity risk, or undermines the dynamic, innovative global Internet”. The Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA) has faced tremendous opposition and today’s Black Out is an indication of the attitudes of the companies in the digital marketing industry.
Avalon M I S opposes SOPA and will go black for eight hours January 18th. Please join us by learning more about SOPA.
