Remember SOPA?

This is worse.

Basically their goal appears to be to turn the internet into the way TV is, where only large corporations that own everything can be apart of that space leaving out smaller websites like us incapable of participating and sharing our content.

This also would allow them to censor whatever they want on the net (the same way SOPA would) and even push to charge a site like ours extra fees just to be seen on the web in America, or to not have our site slowed down.

And that doesn't just mean us or just small websites, that also means apps that use the web, and that also means even the big companies that use the web too, that means Google, Facebook, Netflix, Amazon, Uber, Lyft, Hulu, Snapchat, Twitter, Reddit, Vimeo, Spotify, SoundCloud, Bandcamp, Pinterest, Medium, Imgur, Foursquare, Dropbox, DuckDuckGo, etc, etc... Even internet protocols like BitTorrent and IPFS might be at risk here.

Just think about what it'll mean if your service providers can selectively block or slow down whichever websites they choose.
This post alone might put our site high on their list of sites to block.

Imagine the many protests, calls to action, meet ups, business startups, inventions, and more that would not have happened if this were the case.
