Today’s SOPA website blackout- Google, WordPress, Wikipedia & more

UPDATE: THE PROTESTS WORKED. SOPA BILL PULLED.

A lot of hubbub has been going on in the online world. You may have noticed some websites blocked out or displaying messages such as the below companies- Google, Wikipedia & Wordprss.

These companies and many others are protesting the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and encouraging writing your Congressman in protest. Although the bill sounds good in theory, it is a can of worms leading to censorship and complete lack of freedom online.

     

WordPress posted a very interesting and easy to understand video about SOPA. If you’re a little confused, please watch it.
