If you are in the US and/or are a blogger, you probably know all about the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA). They are meant to fight online piracy but they are so broad and vague that its implications may go beyond shutting down piracy websites.
Today the online community is protesting this by blacking out their sites (you can see the list of participant sites here). Blogs are joining in too, but since I have no idea how to actually black out the blog without losing the whole thing I decided to write a post to join in the protest.
For more information you can visit the official Stop SOPA site here.
