If you haven't already done so, sign the petition at Google (main page) 
against SOPA and PIPA.  These bills allow shutting down web sites (not 
just offending pages) basically on the say-so of the complainer without 
the input of the site owner.

What the advocates say the bill does and what the words in the bill say 
are quite different.

Somebody posts a comment that you don't like?  Shut down the web site! 
Post an unflattering video?  Shut down the web site!

Written by organizations like RIAA and MPAA, collateral damage is not 
relevant.
