Did You Protest SOPA and PIPA?

Did you protest against SOPA and PIPA on the 18th? Or were you just in the dark wondering what all the fuss was about?

I know a lot of people didn’t understand what all the fuss was about. It was rather inconvenient to have so many web sites unavailable. But I was concerned enough to join the protest myself (I’m sure you both noticed 8=) even though I’m not in the United States myself.

If you’d like to see a bit of results from the blackout the SOPAStrike website has an informative infographic: The January 18 Blackout / Strike in Numbers and Screenshots.

The fight against SOPA and PIPA is not over, but the enemy has been pushed back. Perhaps we’ll see some serious attempts to solve the problem of piracy while still protecting free speech and the security of the internet.

  1. I am obviously against SOPA as well, but that infographic had me smiling because some of those graphs are obviously made to scare the living daylights out of people. Not very factual, but speculation of the end of internet as we know it.
