Cyber Activists Rise Up to Derail Proposed Federal Anti-Piracy Bills

Interview with Josh Levy, Internet campaign director with the media reform group Free Press, conducted by Scott Harris

With the backing of Hollywood movie studios, book publishers and the music industry, the U.S. Senate’s proposed “Protect Intellectual Property Act” and House legislation dubbed "Stop Online Piracy Act,” looked like they were headed for easy passage. But the legislation designed to prevent the piracy of U.S. movies, music and software, confronted an effective grassroots campaign that viewed the legislation as a mortal threat to creativity, innovation and freedom of expression on the Internet.

Some of the largest Internet companies like Google, Twitter, Reddit and Facebook agreed and aided in the effort to defeat the online piracy bills. Opponents maintain that the legislation is overly broad and would force search engine companies to act as censors on behalf of the holders of digital property rights, severely restricting freedom on the Internet.

Widespread online and street protests organized at the grassroots to oppose the piracy bills were launched on Jan. 18 and exceeded expectations when more than 115,000 websites participated by either going dark or featuring protest signs on their home pages. The protest generated an estimated 3 million emails and thousands of calls made to members of Congress, expressing opposition to the bills. Not long after the protests began, many legislators who had previously supported the anti-piracy measures reversed course and announced opposition to the bills or support for a delay in scheduled votes. Between The Lines’ Scott Harris spoke with Josh Levy, Internet campaign director with the media reform group Free Press, who talks about what’s at stake for Internet freedom in the current fight over anti-piracy laws.
