Corey Blake protests SOPA/PIPA

If you stopped by here yesterday, you might’ve noticed that the whole site was blacked out to protest some pending legislation.

Here’s yesterday’s statement:

Many websites are blacked out today to protest proposed U.S. legislation that threatens internet freedom: the Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). From personal blogs to giants like WordPress and Wikipedia, sites all over the web — including this one — are asking you to help stop this dangerous legislation from being passed. Please watch the video below to learn how this legislation will affect internet freedom, then scroll down to take action.

While the activism got a lot of sponsors of the bills to switch positions or agree to rethink their strategy, the fight is not yet won. SOPA will be reintroduced next month.

You can write Congress here and here. I also highly encourage calling your representatives, as that type of input can make the biggest difference.
