I never come to the forums but I had to login to show my support for this.

I've watched you make generally good decisions as a company over a few years of playing your game and even if everyone is doing it this one reflects strongly on that and my desire to support your game in wallet and word.

Thank you for your attention to balance!

It's kind of ridiculous how an american proposed bill will have consequences for everyone on the internet. american arrogance.

It'd have to sound pretty darn identical to something else since a lot of music sounds the same now days.

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.
Ughhhhh it's my man crush.
Anyone else watched the live streams as politicians admit they have no idea about how the internet works then vote against whatever this lovely gentlemen suggests?
Makes me a sad panda indeed.

@ Riot games & all employees. I signed on today and saw "Help us Stop SOPA" on the launcher.
You guys have just made the #1 spot on my favorite / most respected game designer list.

As a fellow programmer, gamer, and US citizen I salute you.
