This is a Blackout.

Well, okay, it’s not really. I’m not that tech-savvy.

But i, nevertheless, stand in solidarity with Wikipedia and Google and the millions of others who have signed a petition to stop Congress from passing SOPA and PIPA. As i feel that many of the aforementioned sources provide plentiful information on the subject, i request only that you seek the reasons why SOPA/PIPA are bad (and thus not from me). However, since we’re all lazy on the internet, here are a few useful links:

The Good Men Project’s take on Hollywood’s Pro-PIPA Stance (an interesting facet to the SOPA/PIPA bill that had not occurred to me until i read this).

Neil Gaiman’s letter to Congress detailing why he, as a professional content creator, is against SOPA (a content creator who often is harmed by piracy himself articulating why this bill is not the answer to piracy).

A petition for you to sign to tell Congress violating liberty would be bad (i signed it, and it’s totally up to you whether or not you want to).

Ta, darlings. See you on the other side.
