Earlier this week, we were VERY pleased to hear that the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) was basically killed…although now we're hearing rumblings that it MAY not be as dead as we'd hoped. Boo!
Today, in protest of SOPA and the Protect IP Act (PIPA), a bunch of websites are going dark for the day in an effort to fight against Internet censorship!
Some websites that are participating in the blackout include Wikipedia, Mozilla, Wordpress, Livejournal, Twitpic, and Reddit.
We are in FULL support of this, and we truly hope that neither SOPA nor PIPA make it any further than they already have!
