It would not matter. Using it period would be against the law I believe if this were to pass.

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 would vote this man into presidency in a heartbeat.

Wow, I can't say how touched and shocked I am. Here I thought, **** I'm just a kid who can't do anything. Then, here I am, logging onto League of Legends, my all time favorite game, and see that the people behind my favorite game are stepping up to say what I feared I would not be able to get out there, on my own. I thank you, from the bottom of my heart Riot, I sincerely do. You guys are not just some greedy game creators, you care about us, your players. That's what makes you guys unique.

Thank You Riot

not unless you made the music yourself... but then it can't sound like the other music.
