No Wikipedia Today: Celebs Weigh In On the Internet Blackout
Millions of sites are protesting the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, two bills that purport to censor the Web and, according to Google, "impose harmful regulations on American business." Internet users across the world wide web are opposing the legislation; we took to Twitter to see what celebrities were saying about it. Everyone--from venture capitalist Ashton Kutcher to harem-pants purveyor MC Hammer--had something to say.
Marlee Matlin All this talk about #SOPA. With my limited Spanish I thought "why is everyone talking about soup?" I love sopa de albondigas! :)
Kevin Rose: didn't shower today, avoiding all things SOPA sounding.. #StopSOPA
Evan Williams: Your voice matters: Join entrepreneurs & Twitter users in telling Congress to protect innovation, oppose #SOPA http:/americancensorship.org/
Michael Ian Black: If the internet blackout has taught me anything, it's that I don't care about Wikipedia as much as I thought.
Eliza Dushku: The battle over #SOPA.. This is bigtime. #Wikipedia #Facebook #yahoo #google.. What's gonna go down you guys think?
Michael Moore: www.MichaelMoore.com is now off the Internet for 24 hrs.
