The major blogging platform
is taking part in the blackout against SOPA and PIPA today.
The protest continues to get results. Sen. Mark Kirk just announced on a radio interview that he is now against PIPA, bringing the total number of senators publicly opposed to eighteen. At this time last week, there were only five.
Also, Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren has announced her opposition. Here is a statement from her press secretary:
Elizabeth believes that illegal piracy should be punished, but she has
serious concerns with SOPA and PIPA. They risk chilling the innovation,
diversity, and free exchange of ideas that define the Internet and have
shaped our increasingly interconnected world."
Warren's opponent, Sen. Scott Brown, announced his opposition yesterday.
Keep sending emails to your senators. Over 10,000 have been sent by the Daily Kos community since midnight.
10:29 AM PT: Sen. Roy Blunt, a co-sponsor of PIPA, has withdrawn his support. This brings the total number of opponents to nineteen.
