What you need to know about PIPA and SOPA

As you get started with this class, I encourage you to read up on two bills in front of the U.S. Congress right now. PIPA (Protect Intellectual Property Act) is the bill being considered by the House of Representatives. SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) is the bill being considered by the Senate. The Electronic Frontier Foundation has written extensively about how these bills could have a serious chilling effect on online culture and community.
