If gaming companies support this Riot, you should hawk over them and sue them like crazy... No your to much of a good Samaritan to do that; well we can just get the support of everyone! We here in Australia are behind your movement!!

Next time when a gun is used to commit a crime, the firearm company will be sued.

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.

I’m 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.

I’ve 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 am from CO too..! We all have to stop this at all cost..!

The really stupid thing about this, is that it affects Aussies as well cause if this gets shut down, it means I need to start paying more attention to my wife... and my sanity is already at breaking point.

Aussies unite against SOPA

Riot loves us all and its now our responsibility to deal with the government ourselves, because they obviously cant see what we want! LETS GO FANS AND RIOT! Lets GOW3(Gears of War3) curb stomp that bill!
No. This bill actually got trolls to join the fight against it. That's how sad this bill is. When trolls join the fight.

This is why Riot is my favorite company in the world.

Unmatched community interaction? Check.

Consistent improvement? Check.

In tune with current events and their playerbase? Check.

Riot is the company all other new game companies should look up to.
