SB Nation Opposes SOPA And PIPA...And Blogging The Bracket Does Too

Earlier today, SB Nation posted its opposition to two bills that are making their way through Congress that could change the Internet as we know it, and not for the better. We aren't going dark like English Wikipedia or placing a black banner across our name like Google, but I'm please to see the company isn't staying silent on this topic that is flying slightly under the radar. I feel passionately about this topic, even to the point of friends considering me a "Chicken Little' on the subject.

For more information, please check out the following background pieces. They outline the issues with this poorly-thought out legislation more eloquently than I can (and with less cursing).

From Mashable: Why SOPA Is Dangerous, which breaks down some of the more odious text of the bill, and This Is The Internet After SOPA, a photo slideshow illustrating some of its impacts.

And, a letter from dozens of law professors criticizing SOPA/PIPA.

Thank you for reading and please contact your elected representatives if you want to stop these bills in their tracks. Here's a link to where you can find their contact info.
