Google, Craigslist, Archive.org, Wordpress, Wikipedia, Peter Gabriel, Reddit and have been blacked out to protest the censorship bill known as SOPA. Google as have other sites, make it easy. Click on their blacked out logo and it leads to a petition to sign. I did it. I've also written many times to my lawmakers, even though the senators from New York were endorsing the bill.
A few months ago, it looked like the entertainment moguls had this one in their pocket. The web and people like us have fought back. It looks like our President has reconsidered, as have others in Congress. They could revisit it and I'm sure they will, but what looked insurmountable could now be a reality.
