On January 18th 2012 the internet will be shutting down in some areas in protest of SOPA/PIPA - the music/movie industry internet bills that are targeting the internet and giving the government control over the internet. If passed SOPA will change the internet forever. Due to this on the 18th many sites you know are shutting off and putting up ways for you to contract your local politicians to protest. Sites like Facebook, Mozilla, Ebay, Paypal, Reddit, Mine Craft, Wikipedia, 4chan (and the hacker group Anonymous), possibly Google, my own site Political Buddies, and many many many more.

So what are you planning to do on the 18th? Do you support SOPA? Is your site, or a site you are a part of blacking out??

    I am the owner of several prominent atheist websites, I will be forcing all traffic to a SOPA awareness page on January 18th. Three biggest sites are RationalResponders.com Celebatheists.com and BrianSapient.com

    SOPA & PIPA are two of the most potentially dangerous laws ever considered

    SOPA and PIPA make the Patriot Act look like the Emancipation Proclamation.

    If that's too convoluted an analogy, just imagine your SodaHead account being deactivated simply because you used a copyrighted image for your avatar or added a copyrighted song to your Playlist or MixPod.

    Yes, these Acts are far too invasive and very possibly the biggest threat to online freedom in the history of the Web.

    The good news is that the Obama administration opposes SOPA and PIPA as written, but we still have proponents who will likely try to revive the legislation.

    As I have already said, I as a administrator of a political forum, am supporting the protest and my site will be shut down for the 18th. In it's place will be a page leading to information on SOPA/PIPA and ways members and anyone passing by can contact their local congressman. I wont have my rights trampled.
