Stop SOPA Ireland!
SIGN A PETITION AND FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN HELP
Am I legally allowed repost this image? I have no idea. I wonder if Sean Sherlock (Labour), the Junior Minister in charge of bringing in the Irish version of the SOPA act, has thought about it much. No public vote, no oireachtas vote, no mention on IMRO website and an almost deathly media silence - Irish SOPA is planned to be whispered into law before the end of January. Only for this Wired post today I would never have heard about it.
Read this blog by T J McIntyre, an Irish legal expert and lecturer for a better explanation of what Irish SOPA is and how it could negatively affect technical and creative arts in Ireland.
