Internet Defense League

In response to the recent attacks on the autonomy of the Internet by the media conglomerates through Congress, several groups have decided to create a warning system: the Internet Defense League.

As was explained to CNN:

“It’s a cat signal because we see the cat as the symbol of the Internet,” said Tiffiniy Cheng, co-director of the nonprofit Fight for the Future, which helped organize recent piracy legislation protests and is behind the new site. “There’s this academic theory … that talks about if you ban the ability of people to share cat photos, they’ll start protesting en masse.”

Yes, I Can Has Cheezburger? is one of the groups involved.

They are developing software that can be incorporated into your site to trigger the ‘cat signal’ to warn that the media cons are again buying Congresscritters to change the ‘Net to boost their profits while screwing consumers and the people who actually are creative.
