Pagan By Nature is joining in the global Web-Wide Blackout to protest the proposed Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA), and the Online Protection and Enforcement of Digital Trade Act (OPEN). The blackout begins tomorrow, Wednesday January 18, 2012. Pagan By Nature will be unavailable until Thursday January 19, 2012. I will also be suspending my Twitter and Facebook usage on that day as well.
This protest is a big deal. Other, incredibly relevant online services such as Wikipedia (English/American version), Google, and Reddit—not to mention some major pagan community sites such as Pagan Newswire Collective, DC—will be joining in this protest. Learn more about SOPA, PIPA, and OPEN, find out why everyone who cares about free access and online services is so against them, and how they infringe on our freedom of speech!
Love and Darkness,
