Several companies such as Google, Wikipedia and even some among my own industry (Razer), have declared today as Blackout Day in protest against the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA).
Online piracy is a serious concern and should be dealt with appropriately. Unfortunately these powerful pieces of legislation would empower government and anyone with enough lobbying influence (i.e. big corporations) the ability to ban and block users from accessing web sites and services deemed undesirable. This directly violates The First Amendment and should be stopped.
If you care about protecting civil rights and maintaining the freedom of the Internet please help join the fight.
