Congress, can you hear us?

Google closes its logo with a black color as a form of protest against the Congress which was held in the U.S., which discusses the SOPA and PIPA.
Only in the U.S. that could look like this google logo.

Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S.

Congress, can you hear us?

Two bills before Congress, known as the P rotect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and
the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, are meant to stop online piracy but
would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American businesses.
Experts agree that there are better ways to shut down pirate websites than asking
US companies to censor the Web. Join the groundswell of experts, organizations
and people from all parts of America united in their opposition to SOP A and PIPA.
Tell Congress not to censor the Web and not to cripple our innovation economy.
