On January 18th, Pwned will be joining many other sites by going into a blackout in opposition to SOPA and PIPA. The Pwned team strongly opposes these bills and any other bills that try to censor information in the name of "protecting" money. If SOPA or PIPA pass, lots of the content posted here can be deemed questionable and there's a good chance that even we
can have legal issues. Almost all of your major sites will be effected by this bill, all in the name of old companies that are too stubborn to change their ways.
For more detailed information on the bills, visit http://www.reddit.com/help/faqs/sopa
. This bill will effect people inside and outside of the United States, so all of us need to be aware of what's going to happen and how we can stop it.SOPA One PageInformation on H.R.3261 - Stop Online Piracy Act
tl;dr The United States is building their own version of the Great Firewall of China. We must stop this.
