SOPA/PIPA Strike

My Livejournal/Dreamwidth is attempting to be on strike today to protest SOPA/PIPA

don't know what this is? check out a short video:



You probably have seen Google's blackout, or maybe Wikipedias, or maybe boingboing's, or maybe Wired's.... regardless, this is something that would not just affect people in the US it would affect the way the internet is structured.

Please consider signing one of the petitions and sending info to your congress person - while a couple of Senators have already said they no longer support SOPA it's important they know just how critical bills like this can be (and how bad)

Here's google's petition page that links to more info
