Oh and another thing, I saw the online stream when congress was making amendments to SOPA. What surprised me was that almost all the people there had no idea what was in the bill and a few wanted to pass it so that they could have it out of their hair before winter recess.

I was so glad that they decided to postpone it, but it's still not over. When they come back, well, I'll let Martin Lawrence say it for me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUH3JQjcweM

Again, let's stop SOPA and PIPA

Edit 2: While you can write your congressperson in the link I provided, there's a simple 1 click easy method in the last link Ryze posted. Use that one instead (or use both!)
same here bro!

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.

Iím 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.

Iíve 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.
I hope every citizen of Colorado who views this thread is swelling with pride. I would be.

This is a really important bill, one that we can't let pass.

I understand that their intentions were good, but how shortsighted of them to do this. They are harming more companies than they are helping. Are they trying to turn America into 1984? (The book that is)
