ur soooo missing the point, if that's the case, riot wont be worried, the thing is SOPA is over strict to the point just using extremely slight design ideas can get it banned/ punished what ever.
with SOPA you cant even come up with art designs that have 9 tail, or a song that uses a similar rythem from another song etc


you need to actually go read the bill, this isnt expanding on the definition of intellectual property at all.

I think this time on the fields of justice, instead of fighting against each other we should take the fight together against SOPA.

I hereby want to make an announcement to assemble all trolls and grievers to get together and fight against SOPA with us!

Actually now that I think about it...isn't SOPA full of those trolls?

Rep Jared Polis:
Hi, this is Congressman Jared Polis of Colorado. As a member of the League of Legends community (partial to Anivia and Maokai), and as someone who made his living as an Internet entrepreneur before being elected to Congress, I’m greatly concerned about the future of the Internet and gaming if Congress doesn't wake up. 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.


Holy ****, unexpected.

Sir, if I were in your constituency I'd vote for you. Either way, write your local congressman!
