It’s SOPA Day!

Here in the United States of America, congress is considering a bill that attempts to protect copyrights, but instead may damage the Internet beyond repair.

To bring attention to this issue, many prominent websites are “going dark” on January 18th. These include Wikipedia, Mozilla, WordPress, O’Reilly, and Design Tools Monthly.

The Gizmodo website has a helpful explanation of SOPA here. And the O’Reilly site has a good explanation of why they’ve gone dark.

(If you would like to make your website temporarily display the animated, spotlighted graphic shown above, just temporarily replace your “index.html” file with the one from this website.)
