What We’re Doing On This SOPA/PIPA Day Of Protest



In case you haven’t already heard, congress is currently reviewing new bills that threaten the very fabric of the internet. The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) bill, and it’s sister bill, Protect IP Act (PIPA), are currently working their way through the United States Congress and the Senate. If these bills pass any copyright holder can simply allege a site infringes on their copyright and the site could be redirected at the DNS level and be cut off from all major ad services and payment processing services – all without any trial or due process of any kind. It’s scary stuff, but we won’t rehash the full issue here. Read this post from the Electronic Frontier Foundation to learn more about this issue.

Many companies have voiced their protest and will be blacking out their sites.

As such, we will not be posting any new content today!

    SOPA and PIPA won’t be passed because Chuck Norris doesn’t approve.

    It was great to see so many people come together for such an important cause. But man, it’s amazing how many times a day I access Wikipedia, having it down for 24 hours was a real PITA!

    Here’s an interesting infographic about it:

      Thanks for sharing that link, it definitely put some of the finer details into perspective.

      I’m the type of person that could go days without using Wikipedia though.
