The book explains how the Internet helped people fight for their Internet freedoms--and do the unthinkable in stopping powerful lobbyists and the entertainment industry in their effort to clamp down on online piracy at all costs.

"This is the story about the people behind the most important first battle for the future. When that revolution is won, we will look back to the fight against SOPA/PIPA the way Americans look back to the first shots at Lexington. Beautifully written, and powerfully compelling, this is a must read for anyone who wants a glimpse of where we are going."
--Lawrence Lessig, Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership, Harvard Law School
