Happy Internet Freedom Day!

Today is the first Internet Freedom Day. On January 18, 2012, over 100,000 websites went black to protest the SOPA and PIPA legislation and uphold a free, uncensored Internet. Along with calls to representatives, these actions helped stall the bills in Congress. Fight for the Future is encouraging Twitter users to “celebrate #InternetFreedomDay by posting something you love about the net.”
