A Letter From Lloyd Kaufman in regards to the SOPA and PIP laws

Dear Colleague,

Whilst I am all for killing Piracy of our intellectual property, the proposed SOPA and PIP laws do not solve this and will lead to ISPs and the US government having power like China and Iran to “wall off” or destroy our independent sites with no due process!! Obama is against SOPA/PIP. Please read this good, objective argument and urge your elected Reps to block SOPA in the House and PIP in the Senate until they are corrected to preserve our 1st ammendment.  I have asked the webmaster of my fan site to go dark today joining many other sites, in protest. Thanks for considering this.

Sincerely,
Lloyd Kaufman
President of Troma Entertainment Inc.
