Internet Defense League Introduces 'Cat Signal' for Websites

Netburn, Deborah. "Internet Defense League Introduces 'Cat Signal' for Websites." Los Angeles Times, May 26, 2012.

From the article: "Months after the success of the virtual protests against the SOPA online piracy bill, the nonprofit group Fight for the Future is forming the Internet Defense League -- an organization of people who support Internet freedom and have pledged to fight for it using whatever powers they have.
