We interrupt this program

Today's the day of the SOPA protest blackout for many Internet sites. I support this blackout wholeheartedly, as should any fic-reading or -writing fan. We're in the murky area of copyright law in the US, and this is a proposed US law that could see our hobby driven completely underground without any court action at all. Thought the DCMA was bad? This is worse. This one would give giant media corporations the power to break the fundamental transports behind the Internet. It doesn't matter if you're not in the US with this law.

So! Annoy Rupert Murdoch. Sign Google's petition. Or the EFF's. I like the EFF.

And then when you're done, laugh and weep at the ignoramuses being retweeted by Herpderpedia. Think some of them vote? I kinda hope not.
