This blog has gone blank in protest of draconian bills intended to combat piracy of copyrighted works. While well-intentioned, acts such as the American SOPA and PIPA bills, will strangle creativity and freedom on the web, while doing nothing to combat piracy.

Contact your government representatives today, and let them know that you want them to protect YOUR Internet from dangerous corporate interests.
