Free speech is being threatened...
In observation of today's massive online Blackout that's being held in protest of the two pieces of online legislation known as the STOP ONLINE PIRACY ACT (SOPA) and the PROTECT IP ACT (PIPA), Letters From A Tapehead will be inactive. Imposed limitations on free speech by corporate standards on copyright infringement will potentially lead to a censored Internet and can make any content driven site susceptible of accusation without the benefit of due process. Though I believe Internet piracy to be damaging to the independent musicians, labels and markets that I've staunchly advocated over the years, SOPA and PIPA would likely stifle the efforts of these independent entities, many of whom utilize the online world to promote themselves, their art and businesses outside the realm of mainstream media.
Please view the posted links and speak out against SOPA and PIPA.
