There is a lot of controversial news surrounding the new law that the US are trying to push through. This law will effectively stop free speech and not allow the creativity that we see on the internet. We will be controlled by the US government, they will only allow us to see what they see fit.
But thanks to the huge online backing trying to stop the law being passed, the vote has been postponed. This is the first step in the right direction – stopping SOPA/PIPA being passed. Creativity should be free and it is a way people express themselves, this is something which should not be controlled by the US government.
