Websites Go Dark in Protest of SOPA and PIPA

Today, many popular websites intentionally went down in protest of SOPA and PIPA. SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect Intellectual Property Act) are bills that have the potential to hamper the freedoms we enjoy on the web and can shut down sites charged with even the smallest violations. We understand that piracy is frowned upon and businesses have the right to try and protect their property. But when in the attempt to protect, you do more harm the bill is clearly flawed. We are not advocating piracy, but some of the most pirated material is the product of flawed business models that are slow to fully adopt new forms of technology. It’s up to companies to embrace the inevitable evolution that will happen and not fight it with laws that will damage another industries integrity. You are welcome to disagree with us and leave a comment giving your opinion on the matter. We love discussion.
