The Great Internet Blackout in protest of proposed anti-piracy legislation was in full swing on Wednesday, with thousands of websites either shutting down completely or posting information about the bills. The target of the protest is the Stop Online Piracy Act (Sopa) and its Senate counterpart the Protect IP Act (Pipa), both of which are aimed at preventing copyright infringement. Here, photos of the blackout from around the web
SOPA ...*Sterben, Schmutzig!*
"The Heaven's Lights are fed by the energy generated inside the furnaces of Hell; I AM One Conductive Wire! "
With domain names being so cheap to run;
for every one website they shut down due to sopa, another 10 will rise in its place, because each popular site that they will choose to attack has thousands of, if not hundreds of thousands of members/traffic.
I AM an endangered species.
