As you are aware, there is heated debate at the moment about the SOPA and PIPA bills in the U.S. and the possible introduction of similar legislation in Ireland. U.S. Embassy Dublin along with the Bureau of International Information Programs has organized an online debate on the subject of internet freedom and online piracy. The two speakers, Corynne McSherry and Richard Bennet both have in depth knowledge and experience on this subject and will be willing to answer any questions asked during the webcast.

Add your pledge of support here.
