And you?


Do you believe that Internet should be free? If you do, there's bad news for you - freedom isn't something that big companies can make big money on. SOPA, PIPA and ACTA wasn't the first, and unfortunetaly, won't be the last attempts to make internet less free and more dependent. We believe that an answer to that issue is the Public Domain. If there's decent amount of content that belongs to everyone and can't be taken away from us, there'll always be some freedom. To achieve this, we need everyone's help - if you can contribute even smallest bit of your work, you could make the Internet that one bit more free.
