By now I’m sure that everyone reading this has heard about the SOPA / PIPA legislation and what it is attempting to do. If you have not, take a look at the video below to learn how this legislation could impact our businesses and the entire internet as a whole.
Many sites are planning to participate in a scheduled blackout today to protest this legislation. A very small list of some of the bigger sites joining the protest are:
Failblog, rest of the Cheezburger Network
Red 5 Studios
Google will be changing their homepage
iSchool at Syracuse University
Good Old Games
Check out what Google’s logo looks like today:
If you have a website and would like to join the protest, visit this page and follow the simple instructions: http://sopastrike.com/
If you don’t own a site but would still like to spread the word via social media, you can use the hashtag #sopastrike or #stopsopa all day. BlackoutSopa.org also allows you to change your pic on Twitter to one of three SOPA blackout relevant images.
