Today the biggest Internet protest in history is going down and as sites like Reddit and Wikipedia blackout against SOPA and PIPA, Fight for the Future has released an infographic update about where SOPA currently stands in Congress.
Senate will bring PIPA, their version of SOPA, to the floor on January 24, 2011 and as the day approaches, the SOPA Countdown Clock is counting down the days, hours, minutes and seconds and today the web has gone on strike. For those of you who aren’t aware of what’s going on in Congress, Fight for the Future’s ‘SOPA’s Not Dead’ infographic puts things in perspective. The infographic uses visuals to illustrate exactly how many Senators and House Members currently oppose SOPA versus the number that we actually need to oppose it if we want it to get shot down.
The infographic also provides a calendar of events and encourages people to get in touch with Senators and organize and attend meetings leading up to January 24. Those looking to get involved are encouraged to sign up at SOPAStrike.com and AmericanCensorship.org.
