I am participating in an Internet-wide blackout in protest of two dangerous bills, the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect IP Act, that are soon up for vote in the United States Senate and House of Representatives.
Please take some time to read about how these bills are dangerous and why they affect you, even if you don’t live in the U.S., by following the links below.

If you live in the U.S., please take the time to email or call your representative or senator so that they know that you are opposed to these pieces of legislation.
