I think non US citizens should do as Zileas is saying, If this gets passed this will affect more than Americans.

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.



Mr Congressman,

I understand your a probably a very busy man (being awesome and a politician at the same time is obviously hard, most choose one or the other) but I think it would be a huge boon for the gaming community and a huge increase in support for your efforts if you showed us your moves. Quiet frankly, streams nowadays get a lot viewers and I think it would be a great way to give back to the gamers that put you there by streaming. I'm pretty sure with the support of popular League of Legends streamers you can reach other even further to the gaming public that does not read forums.



PS. Maokai is a hated champion, you should drop support for him and rally behind Teemo. Nobody dislikes Teemo.

I disagree, you should rally behind Riven. Bunny Girl skin and you have an instant 15k votes. Definitely the way to go.

To be honest, this all makes me not want to support any of the companies that are pushing for SOPA to pass.


Congrats Activision. While trying to stop pirates, you've just added another to the lists. There's no way I'm spending money on you anymore.
