The Internet Defense League has been Protecting the Free Internet since 2012.

Beyond the blackout
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, we'll send you sample alert code to get working in advance.  The next time there's an emergency, we'll tell you and send new code.  Then it's your decision to pull the trigger.

Targets
We'll keep in close touch with groups like the EFF and Public Knowledge to identify threats and opportunities. We've also got a subreddit. This will get formalized more soon, but for now we're definitely targeting ACTA in June and CISPA as it re-emerges in the Senate.


Support the network. Become a member.

Our organization and network helped to defeat SOPA/PIPA (by making the innovative tools that powered the largest online protest in history).  The Internet Defense League continues this work. But it depends on its  members' donations for its tiny staff to keep working behind the scenes.  Your donation makes us stronger AND helps us fight to win.
