SOPA Blackout JS

Friday, January 13th, 2012 | Business | by

On January 18th, this site, among many others will “Blackout” in protest of SOPA.  The date is chosen, because that is the day that some technology leaders are appearing at a congressional hearing.  We hope they can convey the idiocy of the bill.

To join the protest, just put the following line of code on your site, and it will present a blackout (if the user clicks anywhere … they can get through it) that has links to relevent information (for more information visit the SOPA Blackout JS Utility site):

<script type=”text/javascript” src=”//”></script>

If the bill is passed, many sites on the net may have to shut down.  The blackout is reminding people the site they are visiting may not exist if SOPA is passed.

If you want to read about what is wrong with the bill, I’ve posted some complaints in my article Supports SOPA, a rant on SOPA.
