Thanks for the link, I just sent a few e-mails. If we keep these protests going, maybe we can get Congress to listen. I hope...

I was waiting for gaming companies to start jumping on the anti-SOPA act and I'm glad Riot did. Thank you for spreading awareness to save our internet.

Even though, I do support anti-piracy measures. SOPA is unrealistic and extremist. I think that the people behind it cannot understand the consequences of SOPA at a global, wider, more lasting scale.

+1 to Riot, all my support.

The fact that SOPA even got this far is disgusting as it is. If it passes, it will destroy the internet community no matter how you look at it. Its 'goal' of trying to stop online piracy is admirable, but it overreaches on so many levels.

I'm willing to bet that most of the politicians who support this are fully in the pockets of the MPAA and RIAA, the two greediest organizations who will stop at nothing to destroy Fair Use so they can line their pockets with even more money. The other politicians who support this are ancient and have never used the internet themselves, much less Twitter, Facebook, or any online community. The latter group has no idea what we think, while the former group just doesn't care. I thought that this country was the land of the free, not the land of whoever pays the politicians the most.

Also, to the representative that posted here: I commend you on taking a stand against SOPA. Your support of our rights is literally the first good thing I've seen out of the government since the Clinton years.

But how can us Canadians help, eh?

I've got a bacon beaver with that bill's name on it, and I need some way of expressing my anger like maple syrup from a tree!

Just an idea...Reddit is going offline for I believe 12 hours to protest SOPA...what if you guys took all league servers down for 12 hours? I think while it may be annoying for the players, me included, it will bring a LOT LOT LOT more public interest against a bill that may pass despite potentially destroying the free internet as we know it.
