On January 18th nearly 13 million of us made our voice heard in the fight against Internet censorship. Together we stood up and formed the largest Internet protest in history capturing the attention of Congress and the world.
MPAA Chairman and former Senator Chris Dodd,one of the biggest backers of the bill, was quoted by the New York Times saying: “‘This is altogether a new effect,’ Mr. Dodd said, comparing the online movement to the Arab Spring. He could not remember seeing ‘an effort that was moving with this degree of support change this dramatically’ in the last four decades, he added.”
