We Oppose SOPA and PIPA

Prominent websites like Wikipedia, Google, Flickr, Wired, WordPress and many others, went on a blackout today in protest against a US Senate legislation that would certainly kill them forever. It would kill Feedity forever. It would kill a million other useful websites and Web applications forever. It would kill the entire notion of ‘Freedom of Speed and Expression’, forever.

As BoingBoing has put it aptly:

The legislation is called the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA), and would put us in legal jeopardy if we linked to a site anywhere online that had any links to copyright infringement.

This would unmake the Web, just as proposed in the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). We don’t want that world. If you don’t want it either, visit AmericanCensorship.org for instructions on contacting your Senator. You might also join us with Craigslist and Reddit and sign this petition. The Electronic Frontier Foundation has more information on this and other issues central to your freedom online.

Feedity was founded on the belief that RSS/XML can immensely enhance data extraction over the Web, as a massive database. Here at Feedity, we deal with external content all the time and we believe in the reuse of public content for a more informative and knowledgeable online community.

We oppose SOAP and PIPA. Support us and help spread the word.

    Great website you have here but I was wondering if
    you knew of any community forums that cover the
    same topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get suggestions from other experienced individuals that share the
    same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Thank you!
