Internet Blackout

For all those who aren't aware, key sites on the internet including the English language version of Wikipedia have been taken down today in opposition to the American political bills SOPA and PIPA.

These bills, set up with the initial intention of protecting copyright in the entertainment industry, will not stop piracy but could seriously curtail free speech and change the way we use the internet forever.

American viewers should contact their local congressperson, and all others should do what they can to raise awareness of the issue and oppose the change.
