Ron Paul’s House speech calling for repeal of sections 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA, which are absolutely staggering pieces of unconstitutional, police-state legislation.

SCOTUS takes Peter & The Wolf out of Public Domain

Prokofiev's Peter & The Wolf was in Public Domain. The Supreme Court just put it back under copyright. Cases such as this make it even clearer why we oppose #SOPA/PIPA.
