Why because of pirates of the Caribbean?! Pirates have existed long before the media they are not specific to any company or movie therefor they should be unaffected.

You may have heard that Congress is currently considering a bill called the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA. While SOPA has a ton of problems, there are some significant issues that I thought fellow gamers might want to know about.

I’m particularly concerned that SOPA might stifle the kind of innovation that brings us games we love, such as LoL. The bill makes it far too easy for angry competitors to sue good law abiding companies out of existence. It threatens any company or website that depends on user-generated content, even companies like Riot. Instead of coming up with great ways to keep making games like LoL even better, companies will have to spend their money hiring lawyers. That's why companies like Riot, who want to protect the games they create, are opposed to SOPA.

I’ve been working on alternative legislation that would protect the games companies create while also fostering innovation. But we also need you to call your members of Congress and let them know of your opposition to SOPA. This bill has a very real chance of passing, and it is up to all of who want to protect the Internet to take action. More information is available at http://keepthewebopen.com/. Please make your voices heard in this debate! I will be happy to respond to your posts below, and will check back every few hours today and respond to as many as I can.

Quick follow up question: I received an email from the support website asking for a 10 dollar donation to help out the cause....now, I have no problem donating, but was wondering how necessary are the donations?
Not necessary at all. It's optional

Could the big companies, like google, facebook, twitter and others threaten to leave the country and move to a different domain? Lets say the all leave to England, wouldnt that impact the US economy?

Riot, how you feel about SOPA is how we feel about tribunal and your justice system. So please take down tribunal and fix your jsutice system.

Just want to post that I support the fight against SOPA. Most likely not going to be able to keep up with this thread due to life, but I care.
