A year ago today, on January 18th 2012, the largest protest in Internet history stopped the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) — a bill that would have allowed for the censorship of large portions of the Internet — in its tracks.

Perhaps no site was more important in this fight than Reddit. You guys helped organize the protest against GoDaddy, you started forcing members of Congress to come out against SOPA, and you were the first to declare January 18th blackout day.

So from all of us on the activism team at the Electronic Frontier Foundation[1] , we just want to say thank you again.

But the price of freedom is eternal vigilance. And the fight for Internet freedom continues. So Ask Us Anything about the next battles over Internet freedom in the coming year and we will try our best to answer any and all questions that come our way.
