In speaking out against the Stop Online Piracy Act, SOPA, which will prevent access to United States subscribers to a foreign infringing site, allowing target sites to disappear, former Vice President Al Gore, said it will serve a threat towards vibrancy of the internet.

According to Gore, “there is hardly anything as important then to save and protect the vibrancy and freedom of the Internet,”

Gore said that although SOPA has a legitimate complaint, the bill will have the effect of really shutting down the liveliness of the Internet.

“The Internet is bringing life back to democracy,” explained Gore.

“Anything that would serve a threat in the vibrancy and freedom of the Internet in the future, I’m against.”
