The Internet Defense League

If you have a website and care about the future of the internet, then this is for you. The Internet Defense League (IDL) is a newly launched early warning system for any law that threatens the freedom of the internet to coordinate and call action to protect it. To quote the IDL website:

The Internet Defense League takes the tactic that killed SOPA & PIPA and turns it into a permanent force for defending the internet, and making it better. Think of it like the internet's Emergency Broadcast System, or its bat signal!

The Problem

Internet freedom and individual power are changing the course of history. But entrenched institutions and monopolies want this to stop. Elected leaders often don't understand the internet, so they're easily confused or corrupted.

The plan

When the internet's in danger and we need millions of people to act, the League will ask its members to broadcast an action.  (Say, a prominent message asking everyone to call their elected leaders.)  With the combined reach of our websites and social networks, we can be massively more effective than any one organization.

How it works

First, sign up.  If you have a website, they will send you sample alert code to get working in advance.  The next time there's an emergency, they will tell you and send new code.  Then it's your decision to pull the trigger.
