Today, thousands of websites across the internet will attempt to promote the end of the SOPA bill, Stop Online Piracy Act. The vote will take place next week. If you’re unaware of what this bill details, check out americancensorship.org or feel free to watch the video below.
Websites, including Google, Wikipedia, Reddit, Mozilla, Namecheap and tons more, will fight the bill by blacking out their websites, censoring their logos and generally just persuading people who are unaware to help fight the bill.
