I just thought i'd let you guys know that I decided to participate in it. Basically, all I will be doing is posting the good ol' SOPA journal with the specialized skin. The icon switch? Still debating that. >w>
Also, i'll be removing all the content on my front page. Don't worry; click on gallery and you'll still see everything i've uploaded. It just won't be as easy to access. >w<
My youtube won't be apart of the protest sadly, because I don't know how quite to do that. And if it works, the main page for my tumblr will too. Tumblr as a whole is participating, actually. >w<
If you have any questions, ask now for I shall be dead all of tomorrow. owo
my feeling to this entry-----> I HATE SOPA! Lol, It sucked... I had to do a science project that was due the day after, and stupid SOPA made Wikipeda go on strike and blackout!!!!! D:l <------- My feelings to SOPA
I'll be offline tomorrow until 8 pm, maybe all day, and will probably instead be working on my comics or stories. I don't know about this icon switch thing, I only found out about SOPA yesterday, and was better informed of it today, but I'll probably just be offline tomorrow for most of the day. I even made a group on Facebook for my friends to hopefully join.
Yeah, basically the only people who support this bill are the industries that are losing money from music and art theft in other countries and our own and whatnot. It's all about the money. It's totally ridiculous, but there are a lot of senators supporting this so we, the PEOPLE, may not have a dang voice after all. That's why this blackout is so important to show our protest.
I wouldn't think so, unless you use Wikipedia. SOPA stands for Stop Online Piracy Act, and it's all about protecting owner's rights against copyright infringement. There's a short gist of it in my journal if you wanna check it out
it's a poorly flawed effort to protect people's rights to what they distribute: music, art, etc. So sites that promote fanart and music etc will be shut down, because people steal and industries lose money. It's all about the money.
