If they actually did this, took down their front pages and replaced it with "STOP SOPA" for even a couple hours tens of millions of people would see it.
Pretty sure more then 10's of millions would see. You under estimate how often search engines are used daily... Google probably gets over 10 billion hits a day, same with face book, Twitter, Amazon. If they were to go to the news would spread so fast it would be like a bomb went off in everyone news station. Google especially, if google were to go down for an hour it would probably make it on 9/10 news station by the 6 o'clock news. If they actually did do this, probably 100-200million people would be informed about whats going on by that simple act.

For those of you having trouble with your 10 digit zip code since you normally only memorize the main 6:

Everything that needs to be said has been said.

Thank you for making your opposition to SOPA public, Riot!

I'm very pleased to see Riot posting regarding SOPA and that they are publicly stating their opinion on the matter. It takes a delicate touch to address political issues like this in an online game and as a game developer.

To everyone else who is against SOPA/PIPA I urge you to e-mail, write, or call your congressman. These bills, while appealing to stop piracy can and will be used to censor the internet akin to the "Great Firewall of China."
