The Mythbusters guys are fighting the "Stop Online Piracy Act"

Here's what he Adam Savage has to say about SOPA in Popular Mechanics:

SOPA Could Destroy the Internet as We Know It

Soon the U.S. Congress will reconvene to consider the Protect IP Act and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). Mythbuster and PM contributing editor Adam Savage says that if these sweeping pieces of legislation pass, the U.S. will join the likes of China and Iran in censoring the Internet, and destroy the openness that made the Web perhaps the most important technological advance of his lifetime.

I'm glad to say that--according to a staffer who I spoke to today--my congressman Dutch Ruppersberger is planning to vote against it.

Thank you Dutch.
