Stuff like this definitely needs to be curbed (as does copyright, in general, IMHO)---it ultimately stifles innovation and lets companies get away with the same stale projects for years on end.

It's rather interesting to note where copyright came form, in the first place--it was an instrument of censorship in the earliest days; I'd argue it's still heavily used in this manner.

This is the greatest thread I've ever seen on these forums.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Riot Games for being so vocal about your opposition to SOPA and PIPA. I've never seen a game company take such an open stance towards something political, and broadcast it like you have to their entire player base. Don't stop, you're a shining example to the world of what a game company should be.

Also hats off to Rep. Polis for being awesome.

Please rename Baron to Baron Sopaer for a while

I wouldn't mind people giving into temptation to go duff him up a bit.

Riot should follow in mass with the blackout to further the worlds awareness of the bill and put global pressure on SOPA
