If you’ve noticed the black bars on Google, Wikipedia, and other news websites, then you probably know about PIPA (Protect IP Act) and SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act). These two bills are being debated in the US Congress as you read this post. These two acts have the power to censor, regulate, and shutdown millions of Internet sites, mostly user-generated content i.e. Facebook, Wikipedia, Youtube, that violate copyright or post unauthorized material; as decided by the Attorney General. AnimatedViews.com could be a potential victim because we bring you news and reviews about the animation industry. Keep us and other websites from disappearing like the first animated movie ever created. Cartoon Brew, has a video explaining PIPA and SOPA in great detail.
