COICA

Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (COICA) (courtesy of Ross Mullen)

The article wants you to go to this website and sign a petition.  That website has a fact sheet.  In trying to find out more about the organization, the website only offers this:

“Aaron Swartz, Executive Director – Aaron Swartz is the founder and executive director of Demand Progress. He previously co-founded the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, watchdog.net, Open Library, Jottit, and Reddit.com. He is also on the board of Change Congress and a fellow at the Center for Ethics at Harvard University. He is co-author of the RSS 1.0 specification and helped launch Creative Commons. He currently lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.”

Are you willing to sign such a petition and give your information to (essentially, as far as we know) Aaron Swartz?
