Tech companies to protest SOPA tomorrow

News

SOPA, in all its disgusting glory, is finally getting the smack down it deserves.  Tomorrow, Google, reddit, Wikipedia and Scribd are all planning to protest the bill in their own unique ways.  Google has yet to reveal their plans, only saying that: “Like many businesses, entrepreneurs and web users, we oppose these bills because there are smart, targeted ways to shut down foreign rogue websites without asking American companies to censor the Internet.  So tomorrow we will be joining many other tech companies to highlight this issue on our US home page.”  Wikipedia and reddit plan to ‘go dark’, or shut down their operations.  Scribd  says that: “Visitors to the site will see a popup with a call to action featuring a petition.”  Wordpress, TwitPic, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation will also be protesting. OpenSUSE will be “going on strike.” A real-life protest is also happening in San Francisco.  Have you done anything to stop SOPA today?  Make sure you do, or else you may not have the chance too.
