Read more about SOPA and what a lowsy thing it is.
Thank you Will Canine for the Gif!
The House and Senate are currently considering legislation that would enact pretty drastic copyright protection measures under the names SOPA and PIPA.
And there was a chance you hadn't heard of them at all, until prominent sites such as Wikipedia, Reddit, Twitpic, and ...icanhazcheeseburger decided to bring the topic front and center with a day of protest. Wikipedia is shuttering all English-language content today, and Google has placed a prominent link on their main page instructing users to lobby their elected officials.
Why? SOPA and PIPA attempt to go after people who offer pirated copyrighted material in order to protect the profits of movie and music producers. Unfortunately for them, the most egregious pirates operate outside of the U.S. jurisdictions.
