I was so hoping that Riot would make a comment on SOPA and PIPA! This company has a freaking huge community, and I'm extremely glad to see something like this on the Announcements page.

I urge everyone to send an email to their congressmen; the link provided by Ryze even creates a pre-generated message, so no excuses! You DO have a voice, and you need to use it. Join the millions that have already emailed, it DOES help! If SOPA or PIPA manage to be passed, I can't imagine what the internet would be like. It would only flare hostility in the hacker community and worse. Remember lulzsec? If this gets passed, I'm sure that even more powerful hacker groups will launch attacks, and it would just go downhill from there...if this seems farfetched to you, then you may be severely brainwashed, and need a wake-up call.

In short, this post may only catch the eyes of a few people, but so long as at least one person sees this and messages their congressman(use the link in first post), then you made my day, week, and month....And my year, if you tell more people ;P

Lastly: inb4 Good Guy Rep Jared Polis. Congratulations on becoming the most popular representative with the newer generations, your support has earned it

Edit: I got an upvote, month has been made <3

i shall join thy in the fight. Piracy is a little bit of a problem but not one that should shut down the internet completely like the government wants to. The internet, the final frontier, keep it that way.

Now Riot has to help bring NDAA down. I don't want to be imprisoned for life over some criticism on US or its allies.

RIOT, is there any way we can have a mass blackout on the server for the duration of Reddit's blackout?? It would suck for all of us, but a future of dumbed down basic internet features..... 12 hours is a small price to pay.

Fun fact time!

Quote:
On December 22, Go Daddy, the world's largest domain name registrar, stated that it supported SOPA. This prompted users from Reddit to organize a boycott. In addition, Jimmy Wales announced he would transfer all Wikimedia domains from Go Daddy. The same day, Go Daddy rescinded its support, with its CEO saying, "Fighting online piracy is of the utmost importance, which is why Go Daddy has been working to help craft revisions to this legislation - but we can clearly do better... Go Daddy will support it when and if the Internet community supports it."
Pressure from influential companies works, and **** GoDaddy.

Signing the petition in change.org to convince EA on going against this legislation might help.
