SOPA / PIPA Blackout

On January 18 many websites, including Reddit and Boing Boing, are going dark in protest of SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act), two dangerous bills that would dramatically alter the internet landscape and create a punishing censorship regime in ill-attempts at stopping copyright infringement.

To learn more, watch the video below.

Second Mode will go on strike January 18 from 8am to 8pm EST in support of the SOPA/PIPA Blackout.
