There’s been no lack of smashing on the SOPA and PIPA bills in Washington today specifically because of the “blackout” agreement everyone appears to have silently agreed on – one name everyone should have been waiting on, a name that’s now in the ring against the bills where he should be, is Mark Zuckerberg. The face of Facebook has brought out his company in force with a small note on his own Facebook page, saying that they will “continue to oppose any laws that will hurt the internet.”
His note itself has over 75 thousand likes on it, having gotten these in right around 10 minutes, the support from his followers (and the rest of the internet) quite clear at this point. Zuckerberg notes that Facebook is wholly against both SOPA and PIPA and he also links to Facebook’s position page making their views, again, very clear.
You can check out our view on SOPA and PIPA in the post we laid out this morning, and find out all you need to know about the bills in our timeline below. These bills are dangerous and WILL have adverse affects on the way you are able to access information if they’re allowed to pass. Don’t let it happen!
