As a user of the Internet I feel responsible to inform my readers of Marvel’s support of the SOPA act. I’ll leave you to your own effects and judgements about SOPA, but what I see it as, is a step to bring US censorship and power over the Internet right in line with that of Communist China.
As an American, I find this affront to my freedom insulting and unacceptable under any circumstance.

What is SOPA?
Some of the worst legislation ever seen is currently before Congress. Three pieces of legislation, H.R. 3261 in the House of Representatives and S.968 and S.978 in the Senate, would cripple the internet by stripping your due process rights and making everyday users wary that the next thing you post might get you sued or thrown in jail.
And unfortunately, Marvel Entertainment is supporting it.
What can you do?
The first thing you can do is tell Marvel Entertainment to stop supporting the bill by signing the petition here http://www.dearmarvel.com/.
