Stop SOPA and PIPA

We are pretty sure you guys by now have heard of SOPA and PIPA. If not, it is a bill that changes the way your Internet will be. Imagine giving the government the power to essentially censor any website they want. Content providers will just need to accuse websites (even sites like Google, Youtube, Facebook, etc.) of copyright infringement and the government can block the entire site. Although its intention of stopping piracy is noble, this is not the way to do it. VNSTUDIOS makes content and we know piracy is damaging to content creators, but there needs to be a better way to stop it. We can't give such unprecedented power to the government and to the likes of RIAA, MPAA, etc.

Google has some nice information about the laws

Call your elected officials, sign the petitions, and spread the word
