SOPA/PIPA Protest

All around the web on 1/18/2012, sites are blacking out in protest of SOPA and PIPA. I will be joining them.

A bit of a disclaimer: I do not support piracy. (Especially piracy of games from indies.)

However, at the same time, I do not support disproportionate responses to piracy. Invasive or burdensome DRM fall under the “disproportionate response” category. SOPA and PIPA, for their part, go so far overboard that they practically redefine the meaning of “disproportionate response.” Therefore, I will be joining the protest.

The site will be back up on 1/19/2012.
