Wikipedia and Facebook have now initiated their 24 hour SOPA blackout "fight".

Thats all. But good on top, powerful corporations standing united as one to fight for our rights.

Edit: Or not. Was doing it for 5 minutes then stopped. :S

Yeah I dont know. It was down with the anti-SOPA message for 5 minutes or so. But now its fine.
Wikipedia is still disabled, but there is a way around it that they tell you of anyway.

No-one knows why facebook suddenly decided to stop protesting. Apparently it was for a good while and has since stopped.

"Sign a petition to have the ESA remove their support from SOPA/PIPA here:
http://www.change.org/petitions/stop...and-boycott-e3

Ask your favorite gaming websites and youtube channel to join the cause by not attending and covering E3 this year until the ESA changes their stance on SOPA and PIPA! If they truly apposed this legislation the last thing they want to do is support an entity that spent $190,000 on PIPA lobbying."

CAD-comic.com has a splash screen video take over their website upon loading it with a video about PIPA. It's not that SOPA isn't dangerous, it's that it more than likely will not come to a vote, where PIPA is less advertised. Also, Dissapointed in Riot for not doing anything for it today.. Nothing at all, I had thought better of them for their announcement of it earlier.
