Web activists celebrate ‘Internet Freedom Day’

By , Published: January 18, 2013

One year ago, Web activists were celebrating the end of two Internet piracy bills. This year, while they’re taking time to remember a victory over the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect IP (Intellectual Property) Act, they’ve also got their eyes on a larger fight.
